Juventus president Cobolli Gigli admits Roma's Spalletti under consideration

Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli admits Roma coach Luciano Spalletti is under consideration for the top job.

Discussing the qualities Juve want in their new coach, Cobolli Gigli said: "Young, yes, but with a head on his shoulders. He has to have desire and the capacity to motivate the team.

"Jean-Claude Blanc is preparing a series of files, but between the end of this week and the start of the next we'll make a decision."

On being confronted with Spalletti's name, Cobolli Gigli said: "I think he is [being considered] but I don't want to push myself any further on that matter."

Cobolli Gigli also didn't rule out the possibility of Ferrara staying on and leading the team next season.

"We have had the confirmation that Ferrara is liked by the fans. We have to choose a trainer who has a past, a capacity to adapt and a strong Juventus spirit."
