Pirlo linked to the like of Guardiola and Zidane

Mircea Lucescu reveals that Inter wanted Merih Demiral to sign and believes Andrea Pirlo, coach of Juventus, will ‘be like Guardiola and Zidane’.

The manager of Dynamo Kyiv gave Pirlo his first appearance as a senior footballer back in the ’90s and now he will be his first opponent in the Champions League on October 20 as a coach.

“I knew Pirlo would become a coach and the same is true of [Diego] Simeone whom I coached at Pisa,” Lucuscu told Tuttosport.

“I am not surprised Pirlo begins his coaching career at Juventus. It’s not a risky choice for him, the club chose him and will support him. I am very happy for him.”

Since the day of his appointment as head coach of Juventus, Pirlo has been linked to the likes of Pep Guardiola and Zizou Zidane.

“He can be like them,” Lucescu insisted.
