Juventus keen on Placente

by Espen Andre Skjerve

14.05.2002




Juventus manager Marcello Lippi will be in the stands during the Champions League final on Wednesday, watching Bayer Leverkusen defender Diego Placente.

Placente is seen as a perfect replacement for left back Gianluca Pessotto, and Lippi is said to be preparing a bid of $10 million for the 25-year old.

Very wise move i'd say. placente is a good player. consistent and young. he will take the place of the ageing pessotto. how well he adapts to serie a is still anyones guess, as we have seen with mendieta and co. - reputation doesnt always help. im sure he will prove a positive move though.
if, of course this becomes a reality...

after watching him all this CL campaign, it would be fair to say that he is a very good player.

against Real Madrid, Salgado and Figo couldnt touch the ball on that right side.

Figo got subbed off :(

i think we should get him ASAP before other clubs start putting higher bids in for him.
