Inter’s former shot-stopper Gianluca Pagliuca believes he “would have another Scudetto if there had been technology” in 1997-98, when the title was ‘stolen’ by Juventus.

The Calciopoli investigation did not cover the 1997-98 season’s incidents; however, following the 2006 verdict,


players and supporters share a different viewpoint.

It was 1997-98, the year that Ronaldo arrived. We won the UEFA Cup and Juventus ‘stole’ the Scudetto, and I say that in inverted commas,”


Gianluca Pagliuca

told the

Corriere dello Sport


“It was a fantastic year and it could’ve been historic, but it wasn’t, and that was through no fault of our own.

“We saw goals that weren’t given when the ball clearly crossed the line, some incredible penalties not awarded… very, very strange situations.

“Such as for example the goal that wasn’t seen in Empoli-Juve or another in Juve-Udinese. Let’s just say that I would have another Scudetto if there had been technology at the time.”
