Fabio Cannavaro reveals he’s becoming a Coach, will watch Napoli in the Coppa Italia Final and insists “Juventus have won 30 Scudetti.”
The Bianconeri celebrated their triumph last week in what was officially the 28th title-winning campaign, as the 2004-05 and 2005-06 editions were stripped in the Calciopoli trial.
“Juventus have won 30 Scudetti. I won my two on the pitch and I defend them,” stated Cannavaro, who was in their defence during those seasons.
“Juve deserved the title this year, as they had a fantastic season. I compliment Antonio Conte and I’m happy for him and my former club, as I know what winning after so many sacrifices means.”
The 2006 World Cup and Ballon d’Or winner is back in Italy at the moment to sit a coaching exam at Coverciano, but while he’s here will also watch the Coppa Italia Final on Sunday.
“Who will I support? I played for Juve for three years and have great respect for them, but I am Neapolitan, have always been a Napoli fan and my brother is the team captain. Therefore, it’s easy to guess.
“I don’t see a favourite in the Final, as Juve have kept an amazing level of consistency, but in a one-off match anything can happen.
“Since hanging up my boots I don’t really miss playing football. Right now I am enjoying myself with some of my 2006 teammates at the coaching course.
“Do I dream of one day being the Coach of Napoli? Obviously, as leading the big clubs is everyone’s objective.
“As for Euro 2012, it is a difficult adventure and there are strong opponents, but Cesare Prandelli has done great work and brought back enthusiasm. Therefore we should be optimistic.”
