Following the Calciopoli scandal, Juventus relegated to Serie B and faced heavy fines.
manager Luciano Moggi has criticizedReal Madrid
coach Carlo Ancelotti's recent remarks that Calciopoli was a good thing for Italian football.
Moggi appointed Ancelotti as Juventus manager in 1999, but was banned from football after the Calciopoli scandal in 2006. Ancelotti recently claimed that Calciopoli was a positive thing for Italian football that helped clean up football in the country. Now Moggi responded to his former colleague by publishing a column in the Libero newspaper.
“Dear Carlo, your claims make me think you forget about your time at Juventus and don’t realise that you are also reporting yourself. You were part of that ‘dirty football’ you enjoyed because it made you grow as a coach.
“You were part of that football also when Juventus lost the title under the rain in Perugia. You were part of that football when the FIGC changed the rules one week before Juventus-Roma
giving the Giallorossi the chance to play with an extra-EU player, Nakata, who hadn’t been allowed to play before.
“He was also decisive because he scored the equaliser that allowed Roma to win the title and you finished as a runner-up once again.
“At that time, you used to come to my office to complain about the injustice suffered by Juventus. I don’t understand why you condemn this behaviour now, just like traitors who take advantage of the dirty game to grow and then, with lights off, they make whistleblowers, but only to pass as do-gooders.
“It’s easy to fish in a barrel and it costs nothing unless you have something else to declare, only with proofs because phone tappings are ready to deny and Gianfelice Facchetti knows something about it.”
Ancelotti replaced Marcello Lippi in 1999, but failed to win the trophy during his two years at Juventus. He then took charge ofMilan
and won two Champions League titles with Rossoneri.
