David Trezeguet says he would have left Juventus for Barcelona in 2004 if it had not been for a phone call from England coach Fabio Capello.

Trezeguet made the admission during a court appearance on Thursday in the case of six men accused of match-fixing in Italian football.

He said: "I had thought of leaving (Juve) at the end of 2004 for Barcelona but then Fabio Capello changed my mind and he told me on the telephone that he could resolve the issues between me and the club."
