Juventus' Pessotto stable after 'suicide' fall
Juventus general manager Gianluca Pessotto has spent a stable night in hospital in Turin following a fall from a window at the club's headquarters.
The 35-year-old former Juve player fell from the top floor of the building, hitting two parked cars before landing on the ground sustaining multiple fractures.
Pessotto underwent a 90-minute operation on his pelvis overnight without any complications and is due to undergo further surgery on a fractured tibia and fibia.
Juventus club doctor Riccardo Agricola told Gazetta dello Sport: 'Gianluca is in a stable condition. It will be a long battle, but we are optimistic.'
His wife Reana Pessotto has already confirmed reports that her husband had been suffering from depression, adding to speculation that he tried to take his own life.
