Capello return possible

If things deteriorate further at Juventus, the club will seek to re-appoint former boss Fabio Capello, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Juventus lost 2-0 to Lecce on Sunday after a catastrophic performance which prompted Andrea Agnelli to publically reprimand the team.

Gigi Del Neri still has the President's backing, but if Juventus don't turn things around, his position will naturally be considered.

Juventus ideally need to qualify for next year's Champions League in order to realise the second phase of their ambitious project.

The Old Lady currently lies sixth in Serie A, seven points adrift of fourth spot with 12 games of the season remaining.

Agnelli is known to be a good friend of Capello who spent two years with Juventus between 2004 and 2006.

He left following the Calciopoli scandal after seeing one of the Scudetti he won revoked and the second awarded to Inter.

Capello is thought to be reluctant to leave his post in charge of England and would seek guarantees from Juventus, notably the signing of two star players.
