Trez angry with Ranieri
Thursday 12 March, 2009
Juventus striker David Trezeguet admits he was upset when Claudio Ranieri substituted him during the Bianconeri's Champions League tie with Chelsea on Tuesday.

Juventus were winning 2-1 against Chelsea on the night and needed one more goal to progress when the French striker was substituted with just 10 minutes to go.

Chelsea equalised three minutes later through Didier Drogba and the Bianconeri were knocked out of the competition at the second round stage.

“I didn't understand the substitution and feel a little disappointed,” Trezeguet told French newspaper L'Equipe.

“We were winning 2-1 and only needed another goal to go through to the quarter-finals. Perhaps we needed to changed something tactically and put another attacker on.

“Ranieri didn't want to, though,” Trezeguet revealed. “It's a shame for me and for the team. Now, we'll have to wait and see what happens next year.”

Juventus are back in action this weekend when they welcome relegation threatened Bologna to the Stadio Olimpico.
Ranieri rages at 'spoilt' Trez
Friday 13 March, 2009
Claudio Ranieri has labelled David Trezeguet “a spoilt child” for his protests at being substituted against Chelsea.

Trezeguet was angry at being taken off during Juventus' Champions League last 16 second leg.

He publically questioned that decision from his Coach and has earned the scorn of his tactician.

“I feel betrayed by Trezeguet's words,” Ranieri growled on Sky Sport Italia.

“What he said annoyed me a lot and he seems like a spoilt child. He has let me down as a man, rather than a player.

“I haven't spoken to David about this. If he talks to me via the media then I will respond to him in the same way.

“I gave Trezeguet 100 per cent faith and as a Coach you cannot do more than that.

“We have always kept this kind of thing within the dressing room, but that seems to have changed now.

“He has made a big mistake, full stop. I don't know what will happen now.”

Ranieri hasn't selected Trezeguet for his squad to face Bologna, officially due to muscle fatigue.

“Bologna are doing well,” Ranieri said, turning to the match at hand.

“Marco Di Vaio is a great guy and he is on form delivering regular goals.

“The Rossoblu are a good counterattacking team and it will be hard for us. They are decent away from home and we expect a tough encounter.

“We have turned a new leaf after our European exit and we want to look forward.”

there are tonns of things we don't need. like trezeguet lambasting ranieri or del piero tossing his jacket in disgust, amauri childishly flapping his arms up and down everytime a teammate screws up a pass etc etc

i'm disappointed trezeguet reacted this way because we were reduced to 10 and we couldn't concede so a striker for striker made sense with 2 others already on. he'll be disciplined accordingly so i don't see what more has to be made of this when others are equally as negative on and off the pitch as well.

Hopefully nothing is made of this other then discplining him. Trez is defenitely on the wrong her and being quite unexcusably childish.

Being bit self-centered and frustrated is somewhat understandable for these top players, but vent your grievance in house, not air it out in the public, we are not Inter :nono:

Juve unite against Trez tantrum
Friday 13 March, 2009
David Trezeguet is increasingly frozen out at Juventus after President Giovanni Cobolli Gigli sided with Claudio Ranieri.

The striker caused controversy when he complained to French newspaper L’Equipe at his substitution against Chelsea, prompting the Coach to call him “a spoilt child.

“His words really annoyed me, as usually these things remain within the locker room. I feel betrayed by him as a man more than a player, and that is the worst thing.

“After [Giorgio] Chiellini’s dismissal we weren’t playing with 10 men, we were playing with nine. Trezeguet wasn’t really playing any more and I needed someone who would fight and hold the ball up, like Amauri.

“Trezeguet touched the ball six times in the first half and six in the second, which included a great assist and a header. When I saw we couldn’t get round Chelsea any more, I introduced Amauri, who is Juve’s top scorer.

“I let Trezeguet play for 80 minutes in the most important game of the season. I’ve always held him in high esteem, but maybe he didn’t do the same for me.”

Now the club is standing by Ranieri and effectively freezing Trezeguet out, although they stop short of pledging his departure.

“Like everyone in our team, he wants to play, but he will stay at Juve because he has a contract and is one of our four star strikers,” said President Cobolli Gigli.

“As for Ranieri, he will remain and continue working with [general manager Jean-Claude] Blanc to build an even more competitive squad.

“I am very satisfied with the way Ranieri set out Juventus and the changes he made. I also say that without taking anything away from Chelsea, we could have qualified from this round.”

The Bianconeri are looking to the future and Trezeguet might not be a part of the squad next season when they will stage a stronger assault on the Champions League.

“We are determined to be very competitive,” continued Cobolli Gigli.

“Let us not forget that two years ago we were in Serie B and our financial clout is that of a club in the stock market that must pay its own way.”

Good post, CDM.

Fact #1: Trezeguet's frustration is understandable seeing as DP to name him stayed on despite being useless on the night. Trezeguet was on 1 assist and Giovinco was at the manoeuvre anyway.

Fact #2: Trezeguet shouldn't have told the press about his frustration.

no player/manager should ever speak of their frustration to the press. problem is after such an emotionally draining loss it happens. if our coach/gentleman/more seasoned professional can make similar comments and alienate 1.5 billion people in the process (yellow ring a bell?) i think it's fair to say trez can be upset about being subbed.

for some strange reason, the notion that a team is a direct reflection of their coach seems to be the reoccuring theme at vinovo this term.

Trez is a great player for the club but he should know better. He fits into a long list of players who need to be reviewed during the summer. At his age and with limited time this season due to injury, it may be time to look at replacing him. We have Amauri who may not be as deadily in front of goal, but has proven he offers a lot more as a complete striker.

he can be as complete as he wants. bottom line is amauri is not a consistent 20 goal man so before we become so gung ho to release trezeguet, we better find one.

I havent been here in a while, but it was one of the things in my mind that I wanted to bring up here.

It also bothers me that Amauri does that. I have a very high opinion of him and before the season started i deemed him to be the top scorer.

Its not necessary and very non-juventus like.

He should lower his head a bit and be more involved in the game than expressing himself like that on the pitch.
