Apparently he was also found a with a rosary in his hand..Gianluca Pessotto, the new Juventus team manager, is in a serious condition after a freak accident in Turin this morning.
Reports suggest that the former defender, who only retired from the game this summer, fell from a second floor window at the club’s headquarters in Corso Galileo Ferraris.
Pessotto has been rushed to the Molinette hospital with what, at this stage, seem to be serious injuries – even if not life threatening.
The former Torino player was only appointed as team manager this month after Alessio Secco was promoted to sporting director.
The news has also reached the Italian national team camp in Germany today. Captain Fabio Cannavaro, a teammate and friend, left a media conference this morning when told of the incident.
Pessotto spent 11 years with the outfit as a player following his move from city rivals Torino.
The full-back, who won 22 Azzurri caps, won six Scudetti with the Old Lady and the 1996 Champions League.
