David Trezeguet looks set to leave Juventus in the summer after his agent, Antonio Caliendo claimed that he does not understand why boss Claudio Ranieri keeps overlooking him.
The striker has missed five months of the campaign following double knee surgery and was benched for the 1-1 draw against Inter on Saturday, despite being back to full fitness.
“I was sitting in the stands and I saw him on the bench and my heart was crying,” Caliendo told Tuttosport. “And then Juve were trailing 1-0 and David, the best European goal scorer over the past ten years, was unused. A world and European champion, who has netted goals every season.
“We are not talking about a 38-year-old at the end of his career. His 161 goals for Juve speak volumes.”
Trezeguet reacted angrily to being substituted during a Champions League match with Chelsea and has been playing a part-time role since.
“He is fine physically and is dying to play a full match,” continued the representative. “He is acting as a great professional and is ready to give his all – even it is for just ten or 15 minutes.”
Trezeguet has a contract with the Old Lady until 2011, but Caliendo admitted that his client is not willing to stand this situation any longer.
“When you get married, it is usually for the entire life, but sometimes people divorce,” he concluded.
