LIVID Juventus fans chanted former Chelsea boss Gianluca Vialli's name, as Carlo Ancelotti's side struggled to scrape out a Champions League victory against Greek side Panathinaikos.

The Bianconeri fans shouted for Vialli, whose reputation in his native Italy is formidable, as they continued to mount pressure on Ancelotti.

Juve lost out on the Italian title on the final day of the season to Lazio last campaign, and Ancelotti is struggling to deal with the vociferous 'tifosi' who expect their side to be the best.

Former national manager Arrigo Sacchi stuck up for his friend saying: "I think Vialli is a good coach, But I cannot imagine that he could work better than Ancelotti."

Vialli was sacked, to the bemusement of many Chelsea fans, after a disappointing start to the season, and his availability has rocked the more insecure managers in Italian football.

The legendary striker captained Juventus to their famous European Cup victory in 1995, and is a massively popular figure at the Turin club.

His success at Chelsea, combined with his popularity, have made him an instant threat to Ancelotti, who has found his popularity dip at the club after losing out, not only in the domestic competitions last season, but also suffer an ignominious exit from Europe.

Don't hope that Vialli ever is going to coach Juventus!

I hate that f***ing lucky team.

Vialli is simply to good to be a Juve coach.
