Zola: Ranieri best coach for Juventus

Zola worked under Ranieri for five years with Chelsea and said today upon the ex-Parma coach's appointment: "Ranieri is a coach indeed of great quality, beyond that he's a wonderful person.

"I will say you more: he is the best trainer for a certain type of team. Juve is just that type of team. And best of all is the way he values young players, he's a phenomenon in making them bloom without risking burnout or subjecting them to exaggerated pressures."

Now Italy U21 assistant coach, Zola continued: "I repeat: he is by far the best to coach a big club with young champions. And for the Under 21s, our Under 21s, this cannot be but a great development. Just consider Mimmo Criscito, Paolino De Ceglie, Claudio Marchisio, Sebastian Giovinco, all young Bianconeri players that are doing great things also for the Italy U21s."
