Baggio: 'Tevez is my favourite'

Roberto Baggio played for both Juventus and Fiorentina, but tips Carlos Tevez to make the difference tomorrow.

His former teams go head-to-head on Sunday at 11.30 GMT, click here for a match preview.

“I’d never dare give Antonio Conte advice, as he’s doing incredible work,” Il Divin Codino told Tuttosport.

“There had already been signs he’d be a great Coach, as on the field Antonio always knew where and how to move in order to best help the team.

“I adore Tevez and have done since I watched him play for Boca Juniors. He is confirming that he’s a great player. It’s not easy for anyone to score regularly in Serie A, so I am truly happy for him.

“As for Paul Pogba, what more can I say? He is incredibly strong and I’m sure everyone already knows that.”

Baggio turned his focus on to Fiorentina, the club that effectively launched his career before a 1990 move to Turin.

“Vincenzo Montella is also an excellent Coach and I am really appreciating the work he’s doing in Florence.”

These sides will also clash in the Europa League on March 13 and 20.

“Juve are among the favourites for the Europa League trophy, especially if they manage to lock down the Scudetto early on.

“Would I return to Juventus as a director? No, I really don’t think so. Besides, they don’t need me.”
