Pirlo gets coaching badges today

Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo finally gets his coaching badges today, as he presents his thesis for the UEFA Pro exam.

Despite having already been appointed as head coach to the Scudetto holders, Pirlo is not yet qualified to be a tactician in Italian football.

The 41-year-old was allowed some leeway by the authorities because he had already begun the course and is due to get his badges today.

Pirlo is at the Coverciano training ground near Florence to present his written thesis, then discuss it in a verbal exam in the afternoon.

His first competitive game on the Juventus bench will be against Sampdoria on Sunday.
