Alessandro Nesta has officially retired if you did not know already but he is back with the Montreal Impact. Not coming out of retirement, the ex- Serie A and world football star has joined the Montreal Impact's technical staff as a consultant.

It was a known fact that the ex-Impact defender was looking to switch to the technical and coaching side of the game. His main tasks with the club will be as a video analyst. Nesta will provide scouting reports on the Impact's games and their opponents.

Rumors at the end of the 2013 season were sending Nesta to the head coaching seat to replace Marco Schallibaum, which ended up not being true.

Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen, Alessandro Nesta is a 9 to 5 employee like all of us.

Nick De Santis, Impact Sporting Director

Alessandro knows the players well, the coaching staff and the philosophy of our club. He'll help the coaching staff throughout the season, principally as a video analyst, providing scouting reports on our games and those of our opponents. We hope that this experience will be beneficial for him, knowing that he wants to become a head coach.
