Without a club since his ouster from Juventus last May, Andrea Pirlo is still looking for a new team. The Italian technician would have a touch with Benfica Lisbon.
A true metronome during his playing career, Andrea Pirlo experienced more difficulties during his debut as a coach at the Juventus . After a 2020-2021 season marked by the absence of the Scudetto for the first time in ten years, Pirlo was dismissed from his functions. Thus, the former midfielder would seek to bounce back. According to information from CM.it, the 42-year-old technician is in the sights of Rui Costa , president of Benfica Lisbon . The Portuguese legend knows Andrea Pirlo well for having played alongside him at AC Milan between 2001 and 2006. Paulo Fonseca and Nuno Espirito Santo are also said to be in the race to succeed Jorge Jesus , which is increasingly discussed within the Portuguese capital.
