"Above all, he missed a big chance at Real Madrid.

Now, he has found the right team and city and we are not talking about his tantrums anymore."If he continues this way, he can come back and be part of the national team.

He has the quality to be among us."Cannavaro, who has returned to Juventus following three seasons at Madrid, feels Italian football needs to act quickly to restore its once proud reputation."It is not only the national team, we need to reconstruct Italian football," he said.

"It is hard to see any young stars coming through."Copyright © 2009 The Canadian Press.
