Juventus manager, Andrea Pirlo says he is very keen to continue in the role for the 2021/2022 season.
Pirlo said this after his team beat Atalanta 2-1 in the Coppa Italia finals on Wednesday.
The former Italy midfielder has been under serious scrutiny for much of the season, because of an early Champions League exit and losing the Serie A title to Inter Milan.
Juventus go into the final weekend of the season at the risk of missing a top-four finish.
However, Pirlo feels he has done enough to earn another season in charge of the team.
“For my first season, I have learned a great deal and then found these satisfactions that are very gratifying,” Pirlo told RAI Sport.
“Of course I would confirm myself in this role. I’ve loved football since I was a child and will continue to love it. The club will decide, but I love coaching, I love this club and we’ll see what is decided. I would like to continue.
“The lads have always been behind me 100 per cent and that’s very satisfying for a coach, no matter what the gossip says in the papers.”
