Del Piero Increasingly Unlikely to Return to Juventus

Alessandro Del Piero wasn’t part of the latest overhaul of the Juventus front office. His chances of ever holding a managerial role at his long-time club are slimming. He recently signed up for the UEFA Pro coaching course. It’s an indication his career is headed in a different direction, Calciomercato informs.

Pinturicchio is currently a pundit for Sky and is under contract for three years. He never voiced his desire to become a gaffer in the past. However, he might have realized that his Bianconeri return wouldn’t happen even despite the ousting of Andrea Agnelli. The two weren’t on good terms.

Even though Juventus took some chances in the past, for instance, hiring Andrea Pirlo with no previous experience, it’s farfetched to think they’ll turn to Del Piero on the bench anytime soon. He was reportedly in the running to become the president after the pluvalenze case wiped out their bass. However, John Elkann turned to a more technical figure in Gianluca Ferrero. The accountant wasn’t just a short-term patch.

Despite the buzz, the former fantasista never received a call from the club. Afterward, Juventus successfully pursued and hired Cristiano Giuntoli from Napoli, further reducing the odds of Del Piero having a meaningful position in their hierarchy. The veteran official oversees every area of the team.
