HAMSIK COULD HAVE BEEN AT JUVE

Former Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli has said that Juventus had the opportunity to sign Napoli's Slovakian star Marek Hamšík when he was at Brescia, but ultimately turned down the opportunity.

It has proved to be a costly affair for Juventus, as they have been struggling to replace the old guard. They have just returned to competing at the top of the Italian Serie A, but Cobolli Gigli reckons that Juventus could have won the title last season had they had a player like Marek Hamšík.
