The man at the centre of the refereeing scandal that rocked Italian football in 2006 maintains that the Bianconeri were wrongly stripped of two Scudetti

Former Juventus director Luciano Moggi has weighed into the increasingly heated debate over the club's '30th' Scudetto success, claiming that he would nail the controversial third golden star to Inter president Massimo Moratti's forehead.

The Bianconeri have sparked outrage among many of their rivals by revealing that they intend to sew a third star onto their jerseys in honour of what they feel is their 30th Serie A title, even though they were stripped of two Scudetti because of their alleged involvement in 'Calciopoli'.

However, the man at the centre of that scandal, Moggi, feels that Juve are perfectly entitled to add another star above their crest and dismissed the concerns of Moratti, who earlier this week urged the Turin club not to stir up any more controversy.

“Of course Juventus ought to put the third star on their jerseys,” Moggi told Radio 24. “If it were up to me, I’d nail it to Moratti’s forehead!"

Moggi, who resigned from his position at the end of the 2005-06 season, then claimed some credit for the Old Lady's latest league triumph.

“I’m still in contact with [Juve] president Andrea Agnelli and we spoke after the Scudetto win," he revealed.

"He learned how to be a director from me and Antonio Giraudo. We taught him well.”

Juventus clinched the title with a 2-0 victory over Cagliari in Trieste on Sunday and can now record a double by beating Napoli in the Coppa Italia final in Rome on May 20.
