Deschamps: Juventus dumping traumatised me

"My departure from Turin traumatised me," said the Frenchman. "I was dismissed because I was doing things my way.

"Sergio Almiron and Tiago were not on my shopping list, but Juve were ready to sign them - whatever the cost.

"If I had the chance to build another Juve team, I'd sign Gabriel Milito (Barcelona) for the defence and Luca Toni (Bayern Munich) for the attack."

Deschamps added: "If Juve qualify for the Champions League this season, it will be like winning the Scudetto."
