Inter Milan defender Marco Materazzi has spoken highly of Ciro Ferrara's Juventus.

"Juventus and Inter in the running? I think so. Juve are very strong and has a great coach like Ferrara, a nice person who knows when to say things at the right time and in the right way.

"And then he has great players with great quality like Felipe Melo and Diego."

Asked about his international future, Materazzi added: “I honestly do not believe it, Lippi is building a team as he did four years ago and it is right that those who are involved go to the World Cup if they are winning.

"But in life you never know: at any time I'm needed I am here. With the coach I have a relationship that goes beyond everything, so I would be available."
