Trezeguet puts Ranieri rift behind him
Tuesday 14 April 2009
David Trezeguet could be staying at Juventus after the France international insisted his aim was to help the club win the Champions League.
The 31-year-old appeared to be heading out of the club when he fell out with coach Claudio Ranieri earlier this year.
Trezeguet criticised the former Valencia coach in the wake of last month's Champions League defeat to Chelsea with Ranieri responding by calling the striker a spoilt child.
However, Trezeguet has now told French daily newspaper Le Figaro: "It's a great honour to belong to Juventus.
"I have won two scudetti with Juventus and a capocannoniere crown, but I still lack a Champions League winners' medal.
"(Marcello) Lippi, for me, will remain the most influential trainer that I have ever had. I am honoured to be a part of the history of the club like Michel Platini and Zinedine Zidane.
"It is a club and a family. It is one of the few teams in Europe where a good part of the players have been here for more than ten years."
Meanwhile, there are fears that Sinisa Mihajlovic's time in charge of Bologna could be coming to an end.
Mihajlovic will meet with Bologna president, Francesca Menarini, on Tuesday to discuss his future at the club.
Bologna lost 4-1 at home to Siena at the weekend, their fourth successive defeat, and are in grave danger of suffering relegation from Serie A.
Mihajlovic replaced Daniele Arrigoni in November but Arrigoni is now being linked with a return to the club he led to promotion last year.
Giuseppe Papadopulo is also reportedly in the running for the job.
AC Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati hopes to be able to return to action by September.
The 31-year-old ruptured the ligaments in his right knee during last month's 5-1 win against Siena.
Abbiati's recuperation appears to be going well though, and he told Radio Deejay: "I am currently in the process of healing, as well as getting into my rehabilitation work, so everything is fine with me.
"I am expected to return in mid-September, so that will be my aim for now. It's a long time out, but at least I will be able to spend more time with my family."
