England boss Fabio Capello has taken a swipe at former club Roma.
He said: â€śThe strongest memory is the last game of that season when the fans invaded the pitch against Parma. I was terrified someone would punch one of their players and weâ€™d we stripped of the Scudetto. I went on the field to push as many away as I could and we managed it.
â€śThere are other memories, good and bad. The unique aura of this city and these fans who encourage you. Itâ€™s a marvellous place, but itâ€™s not easy to work in Rome, because from one day to the next you go from hero to villain.
â€śJuventus, unlike Roma, was a well run club where everything worked and I only had to focus on my own duties. I had very professional players who the day after winning the Scudetto were already focusing on the next season.
â€śThat doesnâ€™t happen in Rome, where the party goes on too long. Juve have a strong work ethic and thatâ€™s difficult to find, even if on the international scene they do not have that same hunger.â€ť
Capello was berated for leaving Alessandro Del Piero on the bench, but the captain has become stronger than ever in recent years.
â€śDel Piero is a great professional and a champion. We couldnâ€™t always play with three forwards and often it was Del Piero who was sacrificed. Thatâ€™s because David Trezeguet is a fox in the box and next to him I preferred Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who could hold up the ball.
â€śI am happy with everything Del Piero is doing now, because he is one of the best players I ever worked with.â€ť
