It has function in cell division. It is an organell found in pairs in animal cells.

Centrioles are a part of an organell that generates mitotic spindle: spindle is very important for a correct chromosome division between the to cells.

To help you to undestand what is mitotic spindle, I insert an image.

As you can see, splinde is in black: is formed by microtubules that start from centrioles and attack to chromosome's centre (a microtubule for chromosome);in this image you can see a cell in metaphase; nucleus isn?t here and choromosomes can be easly seen.
