Zidane and Del Piero reject talks with JuventusBoth Zidane and Del Piero have decided to reject contract talks over the vacant role at Juventus. Zinedine Zidane, rejected the contract that Juventus had offered because 'he wants to work with Mourinho at Real Madrid'. Del Piero in the other hand, was extremely close to sign with their forer employers, according to reports on the Corriero dello Sport.
The current Sydney F.C. player said," I'd like to politely decline the contract Juventus has offered me. Nevertheless, I'll be a Juventus fan for the day until I die and hopefully they will appoint someone that can lead them to our desperate Champions League success and official 30th championship."When he was questioned on who would he prefer to see as the new manager he said," All of the favourites are great. Baggio, Cannavaro, Thuram and Nedved. They were all great players. I've heard that Roberto Di Matteo is close to join Juve as well." The former Juve player left the club this summer after Agnelli didn't offer him a new contract and he said that no hard feelings were left.
In the other hand, the former world record signing Zinedine Zidane, has decided to stay with his current role at Real Madrid. The former France international said," I want to stay at Real Madrid. I have been here for over a decade. I've seen great players play here and I believe that Real Madrid will remain the biggest European force and best team in the world for years to come."
This seems to anger a lot of Juventus fans, as many believed that Del Piero, their former captain and current legend would lead them to glory. With time ticking away, Juventus will need to appoint someone soon, as the players are to return in a week for their pre-season tour around Italy, England and the Italian Super Cup in China against Walter Mazzarri's Napoli.
