Andrea Pirlo is waiting for the right offer to return to the bench. The former great Italian midfielder, led Juventus in the 2020/2021 season, his first adventure as a professional coach.
The 42-year-old could end up in Portugal, where he is liked by Benfica. The president of the “Lisbon Eagles” is Rui Costa, who had Pirlo as a teammate in Milan.
Jorge Jesus’s positions on the team bench have been shaken and Calciomercato reports that the Benfica president is considering Pirlo as the 67-year-old’s successor.
Negotiations between the parties do not exist at the moment, while other names related to the Lusitanian team bench are Nuno Espirito Santo and Paulo Fonseca.
Benfica managed to qualify for the 1/8 round of the Champions League, the round in which they will face Ajax.
