Ranieri Does Not Regret Juventus Stint Despite Difficulties

As Claudio Ranieri prepares to take on his former team in the next round of league fixtures, he revealed he does not regret his stint at the Bianconeri. The Cagliari gaffer took over Juventus just after the club escaped the clutches of Serie B following Calciopoli but left the club after a stint of poor results, as Juve went on to hire Ciro Ferrera to lead the dugout.

In his pre-match press conference to ANSA (via VoceGiallorossa), Ranieri reminisced about his time with Juventus.

“I have no regrets. I took a team fresh from Serie B, and we finished third and then second without the champions of the previous two years. Those two years in Turin were positive.”

Ranieri revealed the truth in his dismissal will be disclosed only after he retires.

“They say I was sent away, but this is not the truth. I will write the truth when I stop coaching. But I always thank those who brought me to Juventus, a great club with great fans,” before praising Max Allegri: “He is practical coach who always wants to win. He studies his opponents well.”

Ranieri coached the Bianconeri for two seasons, leading them in 93 matches. He ended his club stint with a win rate of 49.46%.
