Marchisio says Calciopoli had its positives too...
He believes the penalties inflicted by the sports trial in 2006 allowed him the space to come through and develop at Juventus - leading to a rapid promotion on all levels.
"I thank Calciopoli because if it didn't happen then I would have arrived here much later," he told the press at Sestriere.
"With [Didier] Deschamps I used to play often in the youth team, but then I found space in the first team.
"Everyone always gets their chance, and I certainly took mine. For all young players Calciopoli was an opportunity, not just at Juventus, but Roma and Milan also trusted in youth."
