Juventus coach Del Neri willing to work with Diego, Melo

Juventus coach Gigi del Neri says he would be happy to work with Brazilian pair Felipe Melo and Diego this season.

Del Neri backed Brazilian duo Felipe Melo and Diego to succeed at Juventus amid speculation that they might yet be sold.

He said: "Melo had a good World Cup, which was stained by the sending off against Holland. We will try to give him confidence. I expect a lot from him.

"Diego is a great player with a great temperament. He must change step, but he has a great chance like all of us.

"Del Piero is a champion. He is a player, not a director. He has his age, but his technical qualities aren't up for debate. He will be dealt with like all the others. He will play if he is in form."
