Having played for Juventus for four seasons, the 33-year-old joined Bayern Munich in 2015, before moving to Barcelona in 2018.
Pirlo replaced Maurizio Sarri to become the head coach of Juve's senior squad in August, just 10 days after the maestro took charge of the U-23 team.
With the result, Hertha Berlin suffered its first defeat whereas Eintracht Frankfurt took its first win of the season.
BEIJING, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- Relatively unheralded runners Su Guoxiong and Dou Faxian upset a strong all-Chinese field to take the men's and women's titles respectively at the inaugural Duolun Marathon race in Duolun, Inner Mongolia, on Saturday.
The 21-year-old has only made four league appearances for Barca and hasn't taken part in any of the club's three pre-season friendly matches, highlighting that he is not in the plans of new Barca coach Ronald Koeman.
"Mainz will, from now on, always be the club where players refused to follow the coach's instructions and refused to train," Schroeder added.
It looked as if it was going to be a stroll for Liverpool, who were in total control and brought Thiago Alcantara on for his debut. The new signing from Bayern Munich was then guilty of a needless foul on Timo Werner to give Jorginho the chance to level from the spot, only for Allisson to save his tame spot kick.
The match was decisive to both teams, as only two rounds were left in the first phase. Sierra Leone striker Buya Turay broke the deadlock for Hebei in the 7th minute with a volley from a cross by Marcao.
BERLIN, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- Eintracht Frankfurt took its first win of the season after beating Hertha Berlin 3-1 away from home in the second round of the Bundesliga on Friday.
"We have to agree with the goalless draw as the match was evenly balanced. We have some room for improvement, but I am sure that we are going to score many goals soon," Leverkusen goalkeeper Hradecky said. Enditem
