Juventus legend Fabio Cannavaro admits he is interested in Juventus coaching job amidst reports suggesting that Antonio Conte could be slapped with a 15-month ban for his involvement in the match fixing scandal.
The talented manager has had a plea bargain application rejected at Wednesday’s trial and he now faces a potential 15-month suspension.
Club icon Fabio Cannavaro, who has acquired a coaching certificate earlier this week, has been subsequently linked with what could be a vacant managerial position in Turin.
The former Juventus defender confirms that he wouldn’t be able to say no to his former club.
“What would I do if Juventus called me? It’s those challenges, and those teams, that it would be difficult to say no to,” the 2006 World Cup winner told RTL 102.5 radio.
“Right now they have a great coach who won the Scudetto, so I hope they can resolve this matter.”
In case Conte is banned, he would only be unavailable on match days, meaning that the tactician would still be able to conduct training during the week.
“After all, the only problem with Conte when banned would be the fact he couldn’t sit on the bench on a Sunday. A real coach is seen by his day to day work in training,” Cannavaro added.
Fabio Cannavaro has spent a total of three seasons at Juventus, making 101 Serie A appearances during the two spells in Turin.
