Del Neri doubtful over Diego’s future

Posted on 14/07/2010


Juventus boss Gigi Del Neri doesn’t think Alessandro Del Piero and Diego can play together, fuelling speculation about the latter’s future at the club. 

The Bianconeri are torn between keeping Diego and selling him just a year after his €25m transfer from German side Werder Bremen. 

The Brazilian playmaker flopped last season and his characteristics don’t suit the 4-4-2 formation Del Neri would like to use in Turin. 

“There will not be competition between Diego and Del Piero,” said Del Neri. “But it will be difficult to see them play together. 

“If Ale is well he will certainly play and Marchisio will be one of the two central midfielders.”

Del Neri was then asked about the club’s five strikers. 

“Of these five, two will play and three will be out. Trezeguet is working a lot. He has goals in his DNA. He behaves with great application and for me he is part of Juventus’ project.”
