Juventus hero Pessotto out of danger
ROME, July 17 (Reuters) - Doctors treating Juventus team manager Gianluca Pessotto, who fell from a window last month in an apparent suicide attempt, said on Monday he is now out of danger and has resumed breathing on his own.
'The patient's condition is gradually improving,' the doctors said in a statement, adding he would however remain in intensive care for the time being.
The 35-year-old former Juventus defender has been in a Turin hospital since falling 15 metres from a window in the Juventus club headquarters on June 27. He was found clutching a rosary.
Police said they were investigating a suicide attempt. An investigative source said Pessotto was being treated for depression.
Pessotto was not among those facing charges at a sports tribunal into match-fixing charges that have engulfed Juventus and rocked Italian football.
