Fabio Cannavaro admits that he would not be able to say no to the Juventus job.

Former Juventus player Fabio Cannavaro has admitted that he is interested in the coaching job at the club.

The news comes amidst reports suggesting that Antonio Conte could be handed a 15-month ban for his involvement in the match-fixing scandal.

Conte had a plea bargain application rejected at Wednesday's trial and now faces a suspension. Cannavaro, who is an icon at the Old Lady, attained his coaching qualifications this week and has since been linked with the Turin job.

"What would I do if Juventus called me? It's those challenges, and those teams, that it would be difficult to say no to," Cannavaro told RTL 102.5 radio.

"Right now they have a great coach who won the Scudetto, so I hope they can resolve this matter.

"After all, the only problem with Conte when banned would be the fact he couldn't sit on the bench on a Sunday. A real coach is seen by his day to day work in training."

Cannavaro spent three seasons at Juventus, making 101 league appearances in two spells with the Serie A giants.
