Ventura: Wrong to take Italy job

Giampiero Ventura admits he was ‘wrong’ to take on the Italy job but insists ‘I’ll take back the previous 33 years of my career’ at Salernitana.

Ventura is looking to relaunch his career at the age of 71 with Serie B side Salernitana, having failed to qualify Italy for the 2018 World Cup.

“Maybe I was wrong to take on the job,” he said at his official unveiling on Thursday.

“Two defeats were enough to make people forget the previous 33 years of my career.

“Now I want to take them back and I will.”

A four-game stint at Chievo last season aside, the Coach also coached the likes of Cagliari, Bari and Torino with varying degrees of success.
