(Reuters) - Juventus Women have appointed Massimiliano Canzi as new manager for next season, as they look to get back to winning league titles, the club announced on Wednesday.

Canzi has signed a contract until 2026, and the club have an option to extend this for an additional year. He spent this season as manager of third-tier men's side Pontedera. He makes a return to women's football having worked with Sesto San Giovanni in 2001.

Juventus, who won five consecutive league titles beginning with their first season in Serie A in 2017-18, have finished the last two seasons as runners-up to AS Roma. The club parted ways with Australian manager Joe Montemurro in March.

Montemurro's assistant, Giuseppe Zappella, took over as interim manager for the rest of the season, but from July 1 Canzi will take charge.
