Buffon: We'll win for Lippi

Gianluigi Buffon claims Juventus will be more determined than ever to win the Champions’ League next season.


“Personally,” said the goalkeeper, “I have already put the Old Trafford Final behind me and am looking ahead to next year’s trophy. Apart from that defeat, this experience has been an unforgettable joy.”


Marcello Lippi was bitterly criticised in the press following the penalty shoot-out defeat to Milan and said he would resign if he failed to lift the trophy next May.


“In that case,” noted Buffon, “it is up to us to win it so that Lippi can stay on in Turin. I don’t think he really meant it anyway, it was just a way of working out the disappointment of that occasion.”


David Trezeguet added his voice to the chorus of criticism, but Buffon has leapt to Lippi’s defence.


“You cannot judge the work of a Coach by one game when he has just won two consecutive Serie A titles and reached the Final of Europe’s most prestigious competition.”


“Unfortunately,” he added, “in Italy you cannot put a foot wrong. Mind you, we cannot deny Juve played beneath their capabilities at Old Trafford.”


The squad can now begin rebuilding ahead of the new campaign and even the goalkeeper does not believe Director General Luciano Moggi’s denials.


“The foundation of the team is solid, but I certainly expect an ace in the pack to join us over the summer.”


Among the names linked with a move to Juve are Jaap Stam and Bernardo Corradi, but the headlines are ruled by Trezeguet’s possible move to Valencia.


“Stam is a great player, but it would take someone incredible to step in for Ciro Ferrara in the form he has been in this season.”


“As for Trezeguet,” concluded the ex-Parma man, “I have absolutely no idea what will happen."

"Above all I can’t understand the confusion that reigns around this situation. Unfortunately every summer there’s a story like this to fill the newspapers.”

Miccoli ready for Juve

Italian starlet Fabrizio Miccoli maintains that he is ready to make an impact at Juventus in the new campaign.

"Trying to predict the future is a difficult thing to do, especially in the game of football," said the Azzurri ace.

"But I’m going to Juventus and I think they will keep me. I feel as if I’m ready for a great club side.

"I want to test myself on the biggest football stages in the world. Hopefully everything will go well for me even if we will have to wait and see what occurs."

The 23-year-old was signed by the Turin giants last summer from Serie B side Ternana.

However, the Bianconeri decided to loan the forward to Perugia where he has made an amazing impact.

He was undoubtedly the club’s player of the season as he also went on to win international honours with the Azzurri.

Miccoli is currently in the Italy squad for Wednesday’s European Championship qualifier against Finland.

Juve Have New Czech Visions

06/09/2003. Juventus are following the advice of superstar Pavel Nedved regarding two possible buys for next season's team.

23 year old Zdenek Grygera and Reggina's Martin Jiranek are the two players the Bianoneri's Czech leader has tipped the club to buy. Both are very fast defenders.

Also Udinese's Marek Jankulowski is a player the Bianconero management are tracking, but it still isn't clear whether the Friuliani's 'patron' Pozzo intends to do away with one of this year's major surprises.

Davids and Trez double wages

Edgar Davids and David Trezeguet look set to sign new improved contracts with Juventus to end transfer speculation.

The club has been in fraught negotiations for several months over deals that expire in 2004 (Davids) and 2005 (Trezeguet).

The continuing delay in a signature fuelled already existing speculation that the two players would be sold this summer.

However, it was reported over the weekend that Davids has agreed to another meeting with director general Luciano Moggi in order to discuss terms.

The Dutchman had been linked with Roma and a move to the Premiership for Arsenal or Liverpool, but could now extend his contract to end his career in Turin.

Trezeguet¡¯s situation was even more complicated, as he demanded a massive wage increase in order to pen a new deal.

Juve had rejected this request and it looked likely Valencia could take advantage with a ?35m offer for the French international.

It was today claimed in the press that the Bianconeri have agreed to double Trezeguet¡¯s wages to just over ?2m per season.

Meanwhile, Juve remain embroiled in a battle with Hellas Verona over the other half of Mauro German Camoranesi¡¯s contract.

The Argentine-born player moved to Turin in a co-ownership deal last summer, but his value has since shot up thanks to a splendid campaign and entry into the Italian national squad.

Serie B side Verona are now demanding double the original agreed figure to buy out the rest of his contract, raising the sum to ?3.5m.

Juventus must hurry negotiations along, or a blind auction would take place. Both clubs would offer a figure in a sealed envelope and the highest bidder wins.

Should the matter get to this stage, Inter would be ready with an offer to buy out Verona¡¯s share in the player.

Juventus sign Legrottaglie

Juventus have officially completed the signing of Chievo defender Nicola Legrottaglie.

The Flying Donkeys have today confirmed that the Italian international has been sold to the Turin giants.

Chievo will receive around £5m in cash plus part ownership of striker Giuseppe Sculli, who spent last season at Modena, midfielder Matteo Paro and defender Daniele Gastaldello.

The Italian champions made their move for the stopper after his proposed switch to Roma collapsed.

The 27-year-old has signed a five-year deal and will be presented to the Press on Friday.

Legrottaglie proud to join Juve

Nicola Legrottaglie has spoken for the first time as a Juventus player after his move from Chievo.

The Italian international was officially unveiled to the media on Friday after the Turin giants completed his transfer yesterday evening.

"I’m honoured to have arrived at a club like Juventus," said the defender. "It is the result of many sacrifices.

"I’m here to learn and demonstrate my worth. I’ve already spoken to boss Marcello Lippi and I will have some great teachers here.

"This is a unique environment to play in and I can’t wait. I’m keen to get the likes of Ferrara, Thuram and Montero to share their secrets."

Legrottaglie was expected to join Roma earlier this week before talks for his transfer broke down.

"I never said that I would have preferred Roma," continued the stopper. "I just wanted to join a big club and I was confident that would happen because Chievo wanted to sell."

The former Bari and Modena player has signed a five-year contract with the Delle Alpi outfit after his £5m switch.

Chievo have also secured the part ownership of Giuseppe Sculli, Matteo Paro and Daniele Gastaldello as part of the deal.

"I know that Chievo are an important and prestigious club," said Sculli, who spent last season at Modena. "While Gigi Del Neri is a great Coach. I’m very happy to be a part of their squad."

Bianconeri general director Luciano Moggi was also delighted with his latest transfer success.

"We believed that it was only right that we brought in a young defender," he said. "But that is it now for our summer campaign. All we will do now is swap a few players."

Moggi also maintained that Edgar Davids, David Trezeguet and Lilian Thuram would remain in Turin.

"Everyone wants to stay at Juventus and all of our squad can give their contribution to the cause," he concluded.

Re: Re: Legrottaglie proud to join Juve

The profile of Nicola Legrottaglie



Nicola Legrottaglie is surely one of the revelations of those last two seasons. Twenty-seven years old, the defender from Gioia del Colle (Bari) became famous at Chievo Verona and now arrives to Juventus.

Really astonishing his career. After some seasons between Serie B and C1 (Pistoiese, Prato, Chievo and Modena), in November 2001 arrives the debut in Serie A, during the Verona derby. He gathers 13 caps and 2 goals in the first year. The one over is one of his best seasons: 30 caps and 4 goals in Serie A and the debut with Italy. On 20th November 2002 he debuts in “blue” against Turkey. With Italy he has played 5 games, scoring against Switzerland.

Juve complete Appiah swoop

Gd signing...

Juve complete Appiah swoop

Stephan Appiah has completed his expected transfer from Parma to Italian champions Juventus.

The two clubs officially closed the deal on Monday evening in a move that sees the Gialloblu receive cash and two players.

The Bianconeri have initially paid Parma £1.4m with an option to complete his signing next summer by paying a further £4m.

The Tardini outfit have also received total ownership of Under-21 international defender Emiliano Moretti and the loan of Manuele Blasi.

The 22-year-old Appiah had been linked with moves to Roma and Milan after impressing on loan at Brescia last season.

"This is a great opportunity for me," the Ghanaian said earlier today. "I knew that I would join a big club but I didn’t expect to be joining one of the best in the world.

"Luckily I have played regularly over the past year and my spells at Udinese and Parma were important experiences for me.

"Now I’m ready to work under boss Marcello Lippi and run for the side. After all, I ran for Baggio last season at Brescia. I’m ready to do it for Del Piero now."

Meanwhile, Juventus have sold a half share of Max Vieri - brother of Christian - to Serie B side Napoli. The Azzurri have also signed Perugia defender Sean Sogliano.

Brescia have also been busy on Monday. They’ve brought in Alessandro Lucarelli from Palermo and Triestina goalkeeper Tiziano Ramon.

The 32-year-old could replace Matteo Sereni who is being forced to return to Ipswich Town

New York Times: welcome!

New York Times: welcome!

A warm welcome to bianconeri it has arrived today from New York, where Juventus will face Ac Milan on the 3rd of August at the Giants Stadium, with this article by the “New York Times”, one of the most important newspapers in the world.

Here’s the article, written by Alex Yannis:

Giants Stadium lands the Italian Super Cup

Italy’s Serie A was the most glamorous soccer league in Europe for the more that five years ago because it attracted the best players in the world with high transfer fees and lucrative contracts. After falling behind in recent years, it is now looking to regain the prestige it lost to England’s Premier League and Spain’s Liga.

Juventus and Ac Milan, the best and most popular teams in Italy, will take another step in that direction when they travel here to play the Italian Super Cup at Giants Stadium on August 3.

The prospect of a game between Juventus, the winner of the lague last season, and AC Milan, the winner of the Italian cup, was an opportunity that was too good to pass up.

Champions World, a global consultant on international events that has its headquarters in Moonachie, N.J., teamed with the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority and worked out the deal with the Italian Clubs.

“We have this game here because we have desire to promote Italian soccer outside our country”, Romy Gai, marketing director of Juventus, said today at Giants Stadium.

Umberto Gandini, the organizing director of AC Milan, said that this would be the third Italian Super Cup game played outside Italy. “It made a lot of sense to have this game played in the United States”, he said.

Ac Milan and Torino played for the Super Cup in Washington in 1993, and Juventus and Parma played the match last year in Tripoli, Libya. All other games since the competition was started in 1988 have been played in Italy. Ac Milan captured four times and Juventus three times.

The match her has a potential to be a sellout because it is a meaningful game, not an exhibition. It is also a game involving the teams that played the Champions League title on May 28 in Manchester, England. AC Milan won on penalty kicks.

“There is much interest in this game that will be televised in 153 countries around the world”, said Charlie Stillitano, champions World’s president and founder, “It showcases two of the strongest clubs in the world in a game that means a lot”.

The teams are controlled by two of the Italy’s richest and most influential families. Silvio Berlusconi, who’s Italy is prime minister, runs AC Milan; the Agnelli family, which runs Fiat, controls Juventus.

George Zoffinger, the president and chief executive of the New Jersey sports authority, said about 15,000 tickets had already been sod for the game.

“This game accentuates the fact that Giants Stadium is the place for soccer in the East Coast and the entire country”, said Zoffinger, who pointed out that real Madrid played AS Roma in an exhibition here last year and Manchester United will play Juventus on July 31.

Bayer Rep Puts Lucio In Juve's Hands

Hope he comes to Juve!!

07/06/2003. In an interview with Italian newspaper 'Tuttosport', Ilja Kaenzig, the right arm of Bayer general manager Reiner Calmund, indicated that Brazlian defender Lucio is destined to become a Juventino.

"There are no more secrets, it's under everyone's eyes that Lucio is going to Juventus," said Kaenzig.

"The deal with Roma was just tentative, the first choice remains Juventus," he added.

On Friday it appeared Roma had gained the upper hand again after that Lucio spoke directly to Capello, but Kaenzig's words appear to indicate Roma failed in their final bid
