Juventus coach Pirlo admitted that the pressure of this job has affected him.
He said: "There will definitely be more pressure in the lounge, because on the court I can decide what I want to do with the ball.
"I can cope from the lounge, but other people are explaining their roles, they are playing, so it's a bit difficult as a coach.
"When I play, I have a certain style, which means I can play a decisive role in certain situations on the court.
"Now, I have to do it alone on the sideline."
Juventus made some major adjustments to the team this summer, and Pirlo believes that he can replace some of the old stars with young talents.
Pirlo said: "They are young players, they have high quality, and have great development prospects.". "So, when the cycle of a particular player ends, it is only correct for young players to start again.
"Fortunately, we were able to bring in these guys. Over time, I hope they can develop into top players."
"I am very happy to have this world football idol. I can see him every day, let him under my control, see him training and see him playing football.
"This is a great honour for me and the whole team. Playing with the same passion every day.
"He is a role model for all of us."
