Moggi: 'I'll be back!'

Monday 18 January, 2010

Disgraced former Juventus managing director Luciano Moggi has revealed his intention to return to football in 2011.

Moggi is currently serving a five-year ban from the game for his involvement in the 2006 Calciopoli scandal, which resulted in Juventus being relegated for the first time in their history.

Speaking on Studio Stadio, Moggi said: “In the summer of 2011 my suspension will end and I will return to football. This bothers and frightens many people.”

Asked if he would be returning to Juventus, he replied: “I will never do it like Bettega with the current board which has humiliated us and tried in every way to condemn us. I don't want to have anything to do with it.

“I would return quickly if Andrea Agnelli were at the helm, also to repay the kindness of the Juventus fans whose affection I have never lacked in recent years.”

Moggi then turned his attention to Juventus's plight in Serie A. The Bianconeri lost away to Chievo on Sunday and are now out of the Champions League places.

“By now Ferrara should be sacked because it's evident that the dressing room no longer follows him and if Juventus were to lose against Roma next Saturday the crisis would become irreversible.

“Anyway I don't know who could replace Ciro on the bench, certainly not Maifredi who put himself forward some time ago on the radio. The person truly responsible for this failure is Blanc who represents the full footballing incompetency of this new club.

“Take into account that to do the deal for Paolucci he had to get Franzo Grande Stevens to telephone Siena's President in person? Paolucci, as if I had said Ibrahimovic…

“Blanc deserves to be sacked this instant! In three years he has thrown away €250m. In 12 years we didn't waste a penny of the owner's.”

Finally Moggi somewhat expectedly rounded on Italian champions and perennial League leaders Inter.

“With Juventus's destruction in 2006, by now the power is all in Milan. The Milanesi teams will continue to dominate in Italy for many years, above all Inter who have benefited more than anyone else from Calciopoli. This year an Inter without Ibrahimovic has had more difficulty scoring, but they remain the strongest team in a mediocre championship,” Moggi concluded.

oh mr juan look who agrees with me on juventus management, a man who surely knows more about football than u do anywho i agree with moggi, this management must go. i hope by 2011 they r gone so we can bring u back and start to build a team that can once again kick some ass on all levels

Snakies, they can say what they want about Moggi, but he knows football. I agree wholeheartedly that Blanc is a complete fool and should be burnt at the stake. Him, Secco and throw in that overrated Agnelli clone Elkann into the frey as well. The Agnelli family would never let losers like Secco and Blanc make fools of Juventus like this. What a disgrace.

Luciano Moggi has said he would jump at the chance of returning to Juventus.

The former director, who was ousted from the club in 2006, could return to football once his ban from the game ends in 2011. And there is only one club he wants to work for.

"I wish it could happen. There is no doubt I would come back," he told Radio Erre 2 when asked whether he would consider returning to Juventus.

Moggi feels hurt by the way the team has failed this season, and he hopes to see change.

"I hope Juventus can recover because something is not right.

"I am sorry for what has been happening to the club because it has been destroyed without logic.

"I don't know the reasons why this is, but their transfer campaign was not right, no doubt about it."

please do! come back Luciano!

He'd do it. It's just whether Elkann's hands are tied and they want to continue with their image. If Moggi returned, you just know that everything that happens to Juve is going to be under the microscope. Any perceived advantage, the Interisti are going to go nuts and make all sorts of wild imaginary compilations (sorry Devious ). Ditto the Romans, and of course the English press are going to go to town on it too.

With that said, at least we know we won't make any stupid transfers and the youth players are going to get a chance, so

to the idea.

FIGC will discuss Calciopoli claims

Wednesday 7 April, 2010

The President of the FIGC, Giancarlo Abete, will discuss the latest revelations from the Calciopoli trial in Naples.

Luciano Moggi's defence lawyer has uncovered new wiretaps that allegedly implicate Inter in the scandal that first emerged in 2006 and ultimately saw Juventus relegated to Serie B.

Abete met with the FIGC's chief magistrate Stefano Palazzi yesterday and he intends to discuss whether to re-open the investigation in a further meeting after the latest hearing of the trial next Tuesday.

Moggi's defence lawyer has promised to demonstrate that Calciopoli never even existed on that date.

The revelations could lead to sanctions against Inter from the FIGC, but not against Milan who were already punished for their alleged part in the 2006 scandal.

well, all i gotta say is it wouldnt surprise me. lets wait and see what he has
