Andrea Pirlo reacts after wining 1st trophy as Juventus boss

Juventus boss, Andrea Pirlo, has maintained that it was a great joy after winning his first trophy at the club on Wednesday.

Pirlo won his first trophy as a Juventus manager on Wednesday night following his side’s 2-0 win over Napoli in the Italian Super Cup final.

Two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata gave Juventus the victory over Napoli at Stadio Città del Tricolore in Reggio Emilia, Italy.

“Winning a first title (as a coach) is a great joy, different from that felt as a player, it’s even more beautiful,” Pirlo, who lifted the trophy three times as a player with Juventus and AC Milan told reporters after the match.

“I am sorry for Gennaro Gattuso [Napoli manager], but we wanted to react after the defeat against Inter Milan,” Pirlo added.

“We bet a lot on the pride of the players, we wanted to show that we were a team.”

Juventus appointed him as their manager in August 2020 after sacking Maurizio Sarri.
