Moggi wants Calcio comeback

Disgraced former Juventus director general Luciano Moggi insists he’ll return to the football world after the Calciopoli scandal.

“Juventus did not deserve to go into Serie B,” insisted the man whose wiretapped phone calls to officials were considered to be attempts to favour the Bianconeri.

Moggi resigned as the scandal began to break in May following Juve’s Scudetto – later revoked and handed to Inter.

“I did not leave the football world by choice and I will fight to get back there. Will ex-FIGC President Franco Carraro return to this sport? Let’s get to the next question, that one is laughable,” he told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

Juventus were demoted to Serie B and docked 30 points – later reduced to nine on appeal – but were just one point off leaders Napoli going into this weekend.

“After Juve of course, I hope that Napoli can also get back into Serie A. It would mean rediscovering two superpowers in the top flight. Besides, I am a Napoli fan,” said the former Azzurri director.

Others were less impressed with these statements, such as Palermo President Maurizio Zamparini.

“Moggi wants to return? Well, this is his world, that of the sneaks,” said the businessman. “I am Luciano’s friend and he is the greatest operator in football, but he caused problems left, right and centre. As for me, if this sport doesn’t change soon, then I’ll leave.”
