Corradini takes charge at Juve

Juventus have promoted assistant coach Giancarlo Corradini to lead the first team until the end of the season.

Corradini takes over from Didier Deschamps, who parted company with the Turin outfit on Saturday with two games left to play in the Serie B campaign.

Juve, who have already gained promotion to Italy's top flight after guaranteeing a top-place finish in the Cadetti standings, have two games remaining against Bari and Spezia.

In the meantime, the club are looking for Deschamps' successor with former boss Marcello Lippi reportedly a target of the Bianconeri.

However, Italy's World Cup-winning tactician has no intention of returning to coaching for the time being.

"I have already said that I want to have a couple more months off," said Lippi. "In any case if they wanted me they would come to me directly."
