Davids eyes Juventus job

Former Juventus midfielder Edgar Davids has admitted that he would be interested in taking the Bianconeri job.

The Netherlands international played for the Turin giants between 1997 and 2004, and conceded that he would happily oust current Coach, and one-time teammate, Antonio Conte from the hot seat.

“Conte is good, but I'd steal his place [on the bench],” he told Tuttosport. “If Juve called, I’d say yes – but it's a lot easier at a big club [than at a smaller one].

“Look at Frank Rijkaard. At Sparta Rotterdam he was disastrous, and then went to Barca and won everything.

“Conte was the same. What did he do at Atalanta? Now he is working fine, but at first....”

He also commented on his own managerial ambitions, believing he could be a success in Serie A.

“I am enjoying my time as [Barnet] Coach,” he said. “But I think I could do it in Serie A. All my previous bosses – Van Gaal, Lippi – have taught me something.”
