Default Pessotto

In the World Football topic there was already a small report about ex-Juve player, and now Juve manager, Pessotto who apparently has made a suicide attempt by jumping out of a window. He survided though.

I only saw a small local header here in the media about 'Pessotto falls out of window'. I didn't pay attention because I thought he was included in the Italian squad or something and it was just one of those World Cup newsflashes like 'Romero bitten by snake...'

I was quite shocked to hear that he now works at the Juve office and all indicates to involvement in the Italian bribery/match-fixing scandal.

Doctors reveal Pessotto drama

Wednesday 28 June, 2006

Doctors treating Gianluca Pessotto in a Turin hospital have confirmed that he risked death during the night.

The Juventus team manager, who was rushed to hospital on Tuesday after falling from a window at the club’s headquarters, underwent another operation last night which almost cost him his life.

“Gianluca Pessotto risked dying last night, he was operated on at the limit,” stated professor Antonio Solini.

Police in Turin are investigating the possibility that Pessotto attempted suicide and his wife Reana has today confirmed that her husband has been struggling with depression.

Speaking with the La Repubblica newspaper, she denied claims that her husband was dealing with a serious illness connected with doping.

“There is no truth in that, absolutely none,” she is quoted as saying on repubblica.it. “I want you to tell everybody that. Gianluca was simply stressed, depressed.

“It is also false that there were any problems between us. We had a discussion because we had just organised three days away at Laigueglia with the kids, but he had to work.

“I wanted Gianluca to take a break and I thought it would do him some good. We had already organised everything.

“He hadn’t had a holiday for a year and a half. He was struggling to sleep and wasn’t convinced he had made the right decision in retiring from the game.”

Reana also revealed that her husband was perhaps doubting that he could live up to what was expected after he was recently appointed as the club’s new team manager.

“He feared that he wasn’t up to it,” she added. “But he accepted, although having offers to play on, because of the love he has for Juventus and he thought he had to.”

When asked why yesterday’s traumatic events occurred, she replied: “It was a combination of things: tiredness, melancholy, sadness for what is happening to the club. Gianluca did the worse thing possible.”

Meanwhile, Luciano Moggi, the man at the centre of the Calciopoli debate which could have serious consequences for Juve, has visited Pessotto in hospital.

“I’m here to pray for Gianluca,” he said. “Has this got to do with the scandal? I don’t know.”

Doctors have added that Pessotto’s condition remains serious but stable.

Thanks Hippy!
So now it seems more going in the direction of a depression, possibly related to his retirement from football. The scandal could have added troubles because Pessotto is the CURRENT Juve manager, although I don't see how he could have been involved as a player or during his short period as manager.

This is a tragic story! The good thing is that he is alive and let's hope he will recover soon. I think it's useless (and in a way, immoral) to make hypothesis about the reasons that made him commit a suicide. When he recover he will speak about that.

Just knowing about what was going on is bad enough, maybe guilt got the better of him or maybe he was pushed!

Things aren't like they're supposed to be in Torino, that's for sure. It's interesting that his suicide attempt seems to have more to do with a personal depression than with Juventus current situation. I don't know whether to be relieved or not. For Pessotto it's sad of course and I hope he'll survive and manage to get back healthier than ever again.

Doctors call for Pessotto caution
Thursday 29 June, 2006
Doctors treating Juventus team manager Gianluca Pessotto have admitted that they are unsure whether he will live following his horror fall.

There was widespread optimism throughout large sections of the media that the former player would recover from his serious injuries, but medics at the Molinette hospital are reaming cautious.

“We can’t say that he will get through this,” doctor Pierpaolo Donadio told reporters on Thursday morning. “Even if there hasn’t been any worsening in his condition since yesterday.

“Saying that he’s not in danger at this time is absurd because there could be a thousand complications.

“We can’t really make any prognosis for some time to come. We have to wait for at least 72 hours before we can start to evaluate some important factors.

“The fact that he is young and was an athlete certainly helps him, but the seriousness of the fall remains. Pessotto fell at a speed of 60km an hour.”

The 35-year-old suffered serious injuries when he fell from a window at Juventus’ club headquarters on Tuesday morning.

The recently appointed new team manager plunged from a height of around 15 metres on to two parked cars, sustaining multiple fractures amongst other injuries.

The 22-time capped Italian international was found with a rosary in his hands and police are investigating the possibility of a suicide attempt.

Alessandro Del Piero, Gianluca Zambrotta and Ciro Ferrara all flew in for a quick visit on Tuesday night from Italy’s World Cup training base.

Former colleague Antonio Chimenti, who joined Cagliari in January, arrived at the hospital to offer his support this morning.

It's not my intention to make hypothesis about his attempt, I'm just astonished why he did it and I'm looking for answers... The guy has all my sympathy. I know him as a devoted side defender and it seems it's a nice guy too. I hope you get well soon, Gianluca.

Terrible news...The creepiest part was that he was clutching a rosary when he jumped/was pushed. Anyway, I won't speculate but I hope he recovers.

I really can't see that the reason of the jump (if it really was a jump) is due to any involvement in the scandal. He got the position because he was considered an impeccable and downright flawless character. If he really had a skeleton wearing black and white in his closet, i very much doubt that he'd taken the job in the first place.

Pessottino siamo con te

A flag with these words was raised by Italian players today after 3-0 win over Ukraine.

Anyone knows Italian? Does it mean smth. like "Get well Pessottino" or "We love you Pessottino"?
