Juventus chief Secco: We are happy with Deschamps

Secco said: “There are no problems of any sort between the club and the tactician. I have a very good relationship with Deschamps and I was the one who brought him to Juve.

“I wanted him here. He is a young guy with new ideas, a great worker and he had all the characteristics we were looking for.

“I read that Deschamps and I fought because of Rio Mavuba [of Bordeaux], but we never even considered the idea of signing him.

“Deschamps will be Juve’s Coach next year as well and he knows that the extension to his contract will be discussed at a later time.”
