Topics

Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri has said his former team Chelsea, whom the Italian side meet in the first knockout round of the Champions League, were not a big club until his time in charge of them between 2000 and 2004. "Juventus are my first big club," Ranieri, whose CV also features two stints at Spanish side Valencia, told Saturday's La Gazzetta dello Sport. "With Valencia and Chelsea it was a different story. I made these teams big."
