Moggi: Why Henry failed at Juve...

Luciano Moggi claims Thierry Henry failed at Juventus because he “suffered from tight marking and was sad when he had dropped to the bench.”

Moggi [pictured, left] was Juve’s general manager between 1994 and 2006, and he admits he had his eye on several Premier League stars before he left due to his role in the Calciopoli scandal.

“Both were great teams,” he told The Daily Mail, speaking of his Bianconeri side and Manchester United’s treble-winning team of 1999.

Lippi: 'Moggi the best director'

Marcello Lippi caused controversy when stating the best director he ever worked with was disgraced Juventus man Luciano Moggi.

The World Cup winning tactician spoke to Tuttosport about several subjects and was asked who the most competent director he had ever worked with was.

“How can I not say Luciano Moggi? Aside from the errors he may have made, he has an infinite knowledge of football,” replied Lippi.

Moggi: Bonucci, Napoli, Ancelotti…

Luciano Moggi says Juventus bringing back Leonardo Bonucci was ‘a bad move’ and that Carlo Ancelotti ‘isn’t enough’ to turn Napoli into Serie A champions.

Moggi focused on Bonucci, Napoli and Ancelotti in the second part of his interview with Corriere dello Sport, as well as passing judgment on Roma and Inter.

“I wouldn’t have taken Bonucci back,” continued the 81-year-old.

“Giving Caldara to Milan in exchange was a bad move, but they had to do it so they’d avoid a heavy loss on Higuain.

Moggi ‘wouldn’t have signed Ronaldo’

Luciano Moggi claims he was close to signing Cristiano Ronaldo for Juventus in 2003 but would not have spent €112m on ‘a 33-year-old player’.

Speaking to Corriere dello Sport on Wednesday, Moggi explained how Marcelo Salas’ reluctance to join Sporting CP stopped Ronaldo from arriving as a teenager and felt Juve should have sold Gonzalo Higuain for €50m before bringing in the No 7.

“Ronaldo was Fiat’s signing. Besides, I’d already bought Cristiano Ronaldo,” he told Corriere dello Sport.
