The 46-year-old Italian had previously worked in a similar position with the Silence-Lotto team after retiring as a cyclist in 2007.

"I am absolutely thrilled about the great opportunity that Pro Team Astana and Alexander Vinokurov have offered me," he said.

"I will do everything I can to repay their faith and will give 100% to help the team conquer new heights"
