Igor Tudor has signed the two-year contract to join Andrea Pirlo’s Juventus staff as a technical collaborator.
It was already known that he was taking on the new role at Juve, as it was mentioned specifically in the Hajduk Split statement confirming his departure.
There are reports the coach paid a third of the €450,000 fee himself to terminate the contract as Hajduk Split coach.
It’s an interesting step for Tudor, who has been a head coach at PAOK Salonika, Karabukspor, Galatasaray, Udinese and Hajduk Split, to leave that in order to become an assistant manager to first-timer Pirlo at Juventus.
According to Sky Sport Italia, Tudor arrived in Turin this weekend and has already put pen to paper on the two-year contract with Juve.
This is a return to the Bianconeri, where he was a defender from 1998 to 2005.
