    Oh dear.

    I looked but couldn't find anything apart from Wikpedia saying he was apparantly dead.

    Didn't even know he was the boss. Thought it was still the guy from last year.

    He only recently took over Alessio Secco's role as team manager.

    Gazzetta say he is not in life danger at the moment.

    Weird, Wikpedia have removed that bottom part that said he had 'apparantly died'. :roll:

    Poor chap.

    I thought you had said with a 'Rose in his hand'. :roll: :oops:

    The police, investigating the thing, seem to think suicide WAS the case.
    Bit odd though, why go for such a low building...

    It seems Pessotto's spine is okay, but that he suffered from massive internal bleeding.
    Ferrara, Del Piero, Cannavaro and Zambrotta left the Italy trainigscamp to stay with Pessotto.

    Edit: Just read that he was under a prescription for an apparant depression.

    Yes, it seems that he was suffering for depression...I'm really shocked, Pessotto is a great guy and really a part of Juventus'story. I hope this thing will have an happy ending, with Pesso recovering from both his phisycal and mental issues.
    Zambro, Alex, Ciro and Canna are great people too, they went to visit their friend and that's a touching considering that they're all in the middle of a world cup.
    Please, to all the people, avoid the jokes and respect the guy, this is a serious thing. Thanks.

    Pessotto is probably the 'nicest' footballers around. Always very clean, had a heart for his club, and never cheated. I really hope hes fine because hes been great for Juventus and is one of the few honest footballers in Italy left.

    What a sad news :( and yeh like Tyrian said, let's avoid the jokes guys.
    Yeah the events are all a bit bizarre and sad :(

    I hope he gets better soon and gets over his depression. :|
    A very professional player who played with a lot of heart for Juve and gave the club years of service.

    Good luck Gianluca! Hope ya get better man!

    His juve teammates and colleagues dismiss the suicide theories, as they all know him as an great, enthusiatic and happy man, especially since taking his new position.

    Haha, I initially read the 'very clean' comment as referring to his hygiene. Aah, I usually think people are too touchy about these things but yea, let's respect him. It shows how good of a guy he is if Zambrotta and Cannavaro are going to see him, those are a pair of classy lads from what I know.

    i wonder what happend, bizzare a chap who played football all of his life(something most of us would die for in itself) and probably is pretty well off, and yet still possibly suffers from depression and may have tried to off himiself, life is strange, i feel bad for him and his family, i hope he gets well mentally and physically

    Many people said he did that cos he thought that maybe he wasn't ready to part of Juve's board.

    Don't know if it's true, it's a sad story anyway.

    Hope he can get well soon.

    The Mafia pushed him to send a message maybe. The timing isn't exactly the best for suicide. then again the pressure of scandal... :\

    the best for pessoto.

    EDIT: I watched the Sopranos last night. :mrgreen:

    He was awake and aware today! They lowered the drugs of his induced coma, and he awoke. His condition will need to be watched over for at least a week though, as he is still at risk.
