Italy coach Prandelli admits coming close to taking Juventus job
Italy coach Cesare Prandelli admits he was close to taking the Juventus job.
However, Prandelli accepted the Italy job instead and Gigi Del Neri moved to Turin to become the new Juventus boss.
Interviewed in Tuttosport, Prandelli said: “Perhaps now no one is interested anymore… I was very close [to Juve], yes.
“Anyway, it's a debate that creates embarrassment for me because I respect Del Neri and his work a lot.”
