Luciano Moggi: If I were still Juventus director I would appoint Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini

The former Juve general manager says the current Manchester City boss would be a perfect appointment for the Turin giants
Former Juventus director Luciano Moggi has admitted that he would appoint current Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini as manager if he still were at the club.

The Turin outfit have had another disappointing Serie A campaign, amid much fanfare after promising signs of a revolution last summer.

However, despite a fairly impressive start to the season, their form has deteriorated with bulk of the blame being put on the shoulders of coach Luigi Del Neri, who's position at the club is far from secure.

Subsequently, the disgraced transfer guru feels he has the solution to their problems.

"Mancini has done what many have done and has expressed his managerial concepts well," said Moggi to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli.

"I do not have a great friendship with him, but we have spoke often. When you choose a coach, you go to watch their skill and Mancini would be fine. If they had an opportunity to take him to Juve? Yes, I would take him."

Moggi also spoke about another one of his former clubs Napoli. When asked about their chances of success this season, he gave a blunt response.

"Napoli has to secure second place. [However] at this time, the position is uncertain because of their rivals Inter. The second place gives off a different picture than that of the third."

Napoli are currently second in Serie A on 65 points, but after a home defeat to Udinese, they have now fallen six points behind league leaders Milan with five games to go.
