The man appointed by the Italian football club Juventus to help restore the team's reputation after corruption allegations has tried to kill himself.
Gianluca Pessotto, 35, a former player who was recently appointed manager, climbed to the top of the club's headquarters in Turin on Tuesday clutching rosary beads, and jumped 15 metres from a window. He survived, landing on parked cars, and is in hospital with multiple fractures and internal bleeding.

Doctors have described his condition as serious but say his life is not in danger. The news comes two days before Juventus, along with three other Serie A clubs, is due to face match-fixing allegations. Mr Pessotto is not among the 26 officials facing charges at the hearing, which opens on Thursday in Rome, and the reasons for his actions are unclear. He may have been depressed about a medical condition.
The Italy and Juventus captain, Fabio Cannavaro, abandoned a press conference after Italy's World Cup win against Australia. Cannavaro informed reporters that he could not continue and later described his former teammate as "the nicest guy you could possibly meet". Marco Materazzi, a defender, said he was baffled. "He was with us in Hamburg a few days ago and he seemed happy and serene. He's a friend. We are all very upset. What can have happened?" The players Alessandro Del Piero and Gianluca Zambrotta were given permission to leave Germany to visit Mr Pessotto, who played for Italy 21 times.

Juventus, AC Milan, Lazio and Fiorentina - and more than two dozen officials - face match-fixing allegations over the past two seasons. The former general manager Luciano Moggi is at the centre of the claims. The entire Juventus board resigned because of the scandal.

The club, the oldest and most successful in Italy, could be stripped of the Serie A titles it has won in the past two years and faces being relegated to a lower division, if the charges are proved.

Mr Pesotto, who retired a year ago, was appointed to restore the club's reputation. He was said to have been chosen because of his self-discipline and rapport with fans and players. On the day his appointment was announced he said: "I begin this role with enthusiasm and will do everything in my power to be worthy of it."

Although not implicated in the current scandal, the 35-year-old has been questioned in a separate doping case which saw the Juventus team doctor convicted. The verdict was quashed but prosecutors are pursuing the case in a higher court.

Records of Mr Pessotto's blood tests figured prominently during the first two trials, with prosecutors claiming they provided pointers to the administration of the stamina booster erythropoietin.

Mr Pessotto joined Juventus in 1985 and played for 11 years, helping the team to win six Series A titles, a Champions League title and an Intercontinental Cup, before taking on his new role.
