Igor Tudor has left his position as Hajduk Split head coach to work as an assistant to Andrea Pirlo at Juventus, the Croatian club announced on Friday.
Despite not playing alongside one another during their respective playing stints at Juve, Tudor and Pirlo will join forces in the dugout at the Allianz Stadium.
Former defender Tudor, 42, has previous coaching experience in Serie A, having led Udinese in two separate spells before returning to Hajduk this year.
A statement released by Hajduk read: “Igor Tudor is no longer the coach of Hajduk after he decided to accept the offer of new Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo to join him in Italy as an assistant.
“We wish coach Tudor a lot of luck and success in his future career.”
Pirlo was a surprise appointment after Serie A champions Juve dispensed with Maurizio Sarri following their Champions League elimination at the hands of Lyon in August.
