As Juventus defeated Napoli 2-0 to win the Supercoppa Italiana, Andrea Pirlo claimed the first trophy of his managerial career.

As Juventus beat Napoli to the Supercoppa Italiana, Andrea Pirlo celebrated his first trophy as a coach.

The 41-year-old may have won the trophy several times as a player, but this is his coaching career’s first piece of silverware.

By pouncing on a fortunate ricochet from a corner, Cristiano Ronaldo broke the deadlock, and then Lorenzo Insigne missed a penalty.

Alvaro Morata completed the counter with the last kick of the game with Napoli pressing for a late equalizer, to seal the win for Pirlo and company.

I feel great joy, it’s different to lift my first trophy as a coach, I think even better than as a player because I’m leading such a great squad and in a historic team. It’s fantastic,’ Pirlo told Sky Sport Italia.

It’s unusual for two teams to play well in a final, and it’s crucial to win. Luck will go to your side when you play with this determination.

“We wanted to prove that we’re not the team we’ve seen against Inter, so when you’re playing with that grit, determination, and attitude, you’re making your way to luck.”

Pirlo was up against former teammate ‘Rino’ Gattuso and was talking off the pitch about their relationship.

We are two coaches on two wide benches, and now it’s a different kind of job. I’m disappointed with Rino, but I’m satisfied. We were too concentrated tonight to joke around on the touchline! ”
