West Ham fitness coach Pintus on way to Juventus

West Ham United fitness coach Antonio Pintus is moving to Juventus.

West Ham United fitness coach Antonio Pintus is moving to Juventus.

The Telegraph says Pintus and Steve Clarke were part of a coaching triumvirate at West Ham, although it is he, rather than the Scot, who is closest to Gianfranco Zola. Pintus has now told friends that he thinks it's best to move on and that he expects Zola to do so too.

The trio worked together at Chelsea and Zola stipulated, when taking the West Ham job, that fellow Italian Pintus – who has also previously been employed by Juve – be recruited along with Clarke. It remains to be seen if Pintus will be joined at the Italian club by Rafael Benítez, the Liverpool manager.
