Luciano Moggi has stoked the fires ahead of Juventus’ clash against Napoli by saying Walter Mazzarri was never considered by his old club.

The 51-year-old coach shot to prominence at the end of the 2010/11 campaign after leading Napoli to third place in the Serie A and Champions League football the following season.

His exploits sparked rumours that he was in the running to replace sacked Juve boss Luigi Delneri but, according to the former director, it was not the case as Antonio Conte eventually took on the vacancy.

“It was Mazzarri looking for Juve and not vice versa,” Moggi told Radio Mana Sport.

“I know for a fact that Juventus have never thought of hiring Walter Mazzarri, but rather he was the one to have proposed to them before the appointment of Conte.”

The two sides are unbeaten in the league this season, taking 19 points from their opening seven fixtures.
