The following sentence is taken from the official Twitter account of Chelsea Football Club.

Maurizio Sarri is leaving Chelsea Football Club to return to Italy and become manager of Juventus.

My question is this:

Why is it ".....and become manager of Juventus" and not ".....to become manager of Juventus"?

Thank you.

@paok1970,
"return to Italy and become manager" -- The two terms are part of a single objective. The becoming is assumed.

"return to Italy to become manager" -- implies that the becoming is not certain.

It could be either. Using' 'to' gives it a meaning of "for the reason of ... "
