England manager Fabio Capello has compared Claudio Ranieri's Juventus side to that of his own, and is convinced that the Bianconeri can make an impression in Serie A and on the continent this season.

Capello was in attendance to watch the Old Lady's friendly with Manchester United at Old Trafford, and admitted that he came away with a positive impression of the Italian side.

The England coach was in charge at Juve for two seasons, before the club became involved in the calciopoli scandal, and believes that Ranieri's side are now capable of competing again for major honours.

He told the press: “I admit, against Manchester, the Bianconeri made an impression on me. I saw a solid team against Manchester, with the ability to compete with the champions of Europe. In their attitude, they truly reminded me of my Juve.

“I left Old Trafford convinced that Ranieri's squad can cause a lot of problems in Serie A and also the Champions League. They can resist all the teams in both competitions.â€

Capello went on to laud the change in attitude of the Juve players. He stated that the team ‘know when to change skin' and suggested that an added degree of aggression could help propel the team forward.

He continued: “It's a very important thing (changing attitudes), on par with experience, to make in-roads in the Champions League.

“And no doubt, the old-guard want to make good in-roads in Europe. The anger, hunger for victory that comes after a year in B can be seen in every one of their attitudes. The lads deserve a big stroke of luck, and I would behappy to see it.â€

At the time of the scandal, JUVENTUS squad was composed by

9 world champions (Buffon, Zambrotta, Cannavaro,Thuram,Vieira, Emerson, Camoranesi,Del Piero, Trezeguet) +
1 Golden Ball (Nedved) +
+ players like Ibrahimovic and Mutu

Someone started to say we used to steal: the only way for avoid us to win..... We were condamned without a trial and without proofs: one month sentences to cancel one century of history and to satisfy the pork-ness of milions of anti-JUVE loser supporters

After the scandal we sold 5 of the world champions, Ibra and Mutu ....................but that means we 've kept 4 World champions and the Golden Ball......considering we've bought one World champion (Iaquinta) we still have 5 of them

So that, of course JUVE is still on high level but, because of the inability of the new management to do a simple normal transfer campaign in three years.............we've got only the old guard, and some good players

So, we're not the dream team that we were at Capello's time................. definitvely.
Nonetheless, we'll try to get some trophy, of course.......... our history imposes that to us.... we had to try......and maybe we'll do

None of those Italians had won the world cup yet. I do think Juventus is maybe 2 years away from being a great european side again, they could challenge for trophies this year however, with the quality they've brought in.

All of them were still at Juventus' side when they won the World Cup.................. mercenaries would have left one month later

No.... the scandal happened later, in august, with the faulse-trial and the relative ridicolous sentences

Before there was just some titles published in newspapers

Well thank you so much for clearing that up. :) I think its a joke that Juve were the only team who got relegated their, and the only team that lost its appeal.

well, not very clear actually.......... it was something not well explained yet, because there was not a trial, just summary justice

Nobody knows the truth and everybody pretends not to notice ................. I do think it was something out of the football level, involving politics and big economics centre of powers.

There are some theories simply shocking about that, referring to a faction inside FIAT group that wanted to **** the Juve's management because they were too close to the last heir of Agnelli's family, putting him down with them................................ in facts, JUVE has always been a launching pad for every Agnelli and Fiat leaders........................ agreeing with economic lobbies in Milan, they probably found a way to change something in the italian panorama of centres of powers

Just think that the italian mobile phone company that was at the centre of the scandal (all based on interceptations) is owned by ........ Mr. Moratti, the INTER's patron................ the team that took most advantage in all the story


Probably, we have to wait some years or decades to know the truth

Wasn't the guy in charge of the "investigation" employed by A.C. Milan?

Absolutely not !!..... he was emplyed by Mr. Moratti

First, he wasn't a guy......... he's a pork......... His name is Guido Rossi, you can also find some pictures on the web that shows well is real nature.

He was a man of the italian phone company Telecom Italia, and the relative "TIM" (mobile phone)........ owned just by Moratti

I think in terms of STRIKERS Juventus have the best attacking options available. Up front, at any rate.

Personally I think it might be overkill. Amauri is good enough to be called world class. Del Piero is a walking legend.

Iaquinta is arguably the most underrated striker in Serie A currently, due to a combination of injuries & being left on the bench undeservedly.

The problem for me is where does Trezeguet fit in all this. He's too good to be a bench warmer but you can't rotate four top class strikers.


In midfield they are somewhat light unless Giovinco steps up, he's still very young. Sissoko was a very smart buy, for a good price.

Nedved is getting on. Camoranesi is 31, I believe. They're both classy wide players but on the old side.

They need an attacking midfielder & perhaps an extra option, or two, for the wings. Defense wise I think Melberg is better than most realise.
