Novellino wants Moggi back
Walter Novellino believes that in order to succeed in Italy a young trainer like Ciro Ferrara or Leonardo needs a director like Luciano Moggi behind them.

The former Napoli, Torino and Sampdoria Coach was talking about the Guardiola effect, which has seen many clubs take a chance on rookie tacticians.

Speaking to Gold Sport, Novellino said: “It's a period where it's fashionable to focus on a young Coach like Guardiola, also because it means a club spends less.

“The truth is that in the end the experience of a Coach counts a lot. It makes the difference.

“Anyway, in order to win you need a great director behind you. You need a director like Moggi who protects you.

“I don't think I am exaggerating in saying that Lippi and Capello's Scudetti were 60-70 per cent down to the great work done by the Triad,” Novellino concluded.

Moggi is currently serving a five-year ban from football for his involvement in the 2006 Calciopoli scandal, which saw Juventus relegated to Serie B.
