Toldo Hits Out At Trapattoni Selection Policy

A frustrated figure (www.inter.it)
07/03/2002. Inter goalkeeper Francesco Toldo has launched a stinging attack on Italy coach Giovanni Trapattoni after finding himself on the bench for each of the Azzurri's four World Cup matches.

"It was a very strange World Cup for me," he said. "At times I wondered if I was just wasting my time after working so hard to prepare.

"I knew that I wouldn't start the tournament but Trapattoni let me think that I'd have the opportunity to play at some point. I have the memory of an elephant for some things.

"I have respect for Trapattoni but for too many players it felt like being on holiday because some players were untouchable.

"I think this was a problem for Italy."

It was of the most talked about topics prior to the World Cup, who would start out of Buffon or Toldo. Both are world class keepers but in the end Trap picked Buffon, and I think he did a great job.
