The Italian giants unveiled the World Cup winner as the new Primavera head coach with predecessor Andrea Zanchetta moving to another role

Juventus have confirmed that former full-back Fabio Grosso will take up the position of head coach of the club's youth team.

The 36-year-old ended his playing career with the Turin club, with whom he enjoyed a three-year spell between 2009 and 2012, winning the Serie A title with Juve in 2011-12.

Andrea Zanchetta had previously been in the role of youth-team head coach, with Grosso - part of the Italy side that lifted the 2006 World Cup - serving as his assistant, but he now takes up a different position within the club's backroom staff.

A statement of Juve's website read: "Fabio Grosso has today been confirmed as the new Primavera head coach.

"The World Cup winner replaces Andrea Zanchetta, who will take up another technical role within the club's youth academy."

Grosso also had spells at Inter, Lyon and Palermo during his playing days.
