Fabio Capello: I tried to sign Barcelona star Lionel Messi on loan for Juventus

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley sounds off on the poor officiating in Manchester United's last-gasp draw against Chelsea and explains why Cristiano Ronaldo is head and shoulders above Lionel Messi so far this season.

Fabio Capello has revealed he once asked Frank Rijkaard during a match if he could take Lionel Messi on loan from Barcelona to Juventus.

Messi, 27, is two goals short of breaking Telmo Zarra's all-time La Liga record of 251 strikes, and is among the 23 nominees for the 2014 Ballon d'Or having won the award four times already.

Russia coach Capello says he tried to persuade former Camp Nou coach Rijkaard during a Gamper Trophy match in 2005 -- in which Messi impressed with an assist -- to let him take...

Genoa rally to upset Juventus on Gigi Buffon's 500th appearance

Former Premier League goalkeeper Shaka Hislop assesses the achievements of Sao Paulo's Rogerio Ceni and Juventus' Gigi Buffon.

Defeated for the first time in Serie A this season, Juventus lost 1-0 away to Genoa on the day Gianluigi Buffon made his 500th appearance for the club. Unable to celebrate but forced to commiserate, bad defending, inefficient attacking and Juve's usual disinterested performance in the first half led to a surprising loss.
