Iuliano and Montero should leave for sure. Ferrara can stay for another season as a guider to the younger defenders in the squad. Although Tudor is more than a half-decent defender he's always injured. If Capello actually plans on playing him and in the correct position then he's definitely worth keeping, but under Lippi he hardly got on to the pitch and when he did it was as a midfielder. Birindelli has to stay imo. He's a solid back-up player and even though he doesn't do anything extraordinary, when he gets his chance he seldomly disappoints. If I was the coach I'd bid Pessotto farewell and use Chiellini as Zambro's sub, but loaning the 20 year old and keeping Pessotto for another term is also an option. I think that about covers it.
Even so, I don't think we should sell him. Apart from having a couple of good seasons left in him, I think he can teach our new defenders a thing or two about solidity. You can't spit on Thuram just because of last season's performance; he's one of the best defenders in the world, and it'd be any coach's dream to have someone like him training up the new crop for the future
Why does everyone bashes Paolo Montero..:fero::fero:..he has been the main reference of our central defense for seven years...he is the less scored central defense in the team in the las TWELVE YEARS !!! Why do you think Lippi was keeping him always in the pitch despite the high risk for red cards??? ..and now, one bad and injured season and everybody said the man is garbagge, lets sell it for peanuts...didnt someone has read what Luciano Moggi has said about Juve Pre-montero and Post-montero?
Montero will a 100% stay. If someone will leave, it will be Tudor, Birindelli or Iuliano. It would be unfair to let Montero go after just one bead season, because he was a rock in our defense and a main reason for our success. I remember the Barcelona game, when he was the main reason why we won.
