It wasn’t a mystery that Juventus skipper Alessandro Del Piero didnt get along with former coach Fabio Capello, but few expected the rancor was so big.

“If Capello stayed I would have left. Nobody misses him at Juve today. This shows what sort of relationship he forged with his players in the past two years,â€￾ said the 2006 World Champion.

“I also think Capello did not work well as a coach. With the team we had last season, we should have gone far in the Champions League. But we were going to go out in the second round if it wasn’t for that error of the Werder keeper,â€￾ he added.

“Capello’s problem was that he was unable to create a true team spirit,â€￾ the bitter Del Piero said in conclusion.

The relationship between Del Piero and ‘Don Fabio’ grew difficult when, starting in the first season of Capello’s Juve reign, the Juventus icon was benched regularly.

By Capello’s second year it was clear the coach considered Del Piero as a super-sub. Capello is now despised by most Juve fans as well after he left the club for Real Madrid immediately after the Bianconeri were demoted to second division following the ‘Calciopoli’ scandal.

Just a month and a half before, Capello had said he would stay on with Juve whatever the decision of the disciplinary commission.
