Deschamps hopes Cannavaro follows Del Piero lead
tribalfooball.com - July 16, 2006
New Juventus coach Didier Deschamps hopes Fabio Cannavaro follows Alessandro del Piero's lead and agrees to stay with the club, despite their relegation.
"Alessandro has made a professional decision and set an example for the other players to stay and take part in this adventure," said Deschamps.
"Cannavaro is a leader and is obviously a very important player to the team and the coach."
Deschamps has already called each member of the squad, but admits "it would be impossible" to keep hold of everybody.
"I told them all that I count on every one of them as they are all important players, but I will respect their personal decisions."
