Juventus boss, Andrea Pirlo has insisted that he wants to stay on as manager of the club that he loves after leading the Bianconeri to the Coppa Italia trophy on Wednesday, his first honour as manager of the club.

Pirlo's debut season as boss of the Bianconeri has not gone to plan, with the club losing their Serie A title to rivals, Inter Milan while also getting knocked out of the Champions League in the round of 16 stage by Porto.

However, goals from Dejan Kulusevski and Federico Chiesa ensured that Juventus beat Atalanta 2-1 on the night to take home a 14th Coppa Italia crown, thereby easing the pressure on Pirlo.

"These victories do not cancel the ups and downs during the season, but in this first season as a manager I have learned a lot. We had the desire to win and take home this trophy despite not having a positive season," Pirlo said after the game.

"The club will decide if I stay but I would like to continue because I love to coach and I love this club that has given me so much satisfaction. My goal is to continue."

Pirlo's next aim is to ensure that his side gets all three points in their final game of the season against Bologna on Saturday as they hope to secure Champions League qualification on the final Serie A matchday.
