A better understanding of events:

Alessandro Del Piero, Gianluca Zambrotta and assistant manager Ciro Ferrara left the Azzurri camp to visit Gianluca Pessotto, as more details emerge on his fall from a window.

The recently retired player, who had just been appointed Juventus Team Manager, fell from a height of around 15 metres on to two parked cars at the Juventus headquarters in Corso Galileo Ferraris, Turin. He was conscious and clutching a rosary in his hand.

Pessotto underwent a three-hour operation at the Molinette hospital and the Italy trio flew in with a private plane to visit their former teammate, but he is in an induced coma to help ease his passage through more surgery this evening to reduce the fractures.

“We took him in to stop some internal bleeding,” revealed doctor Marco Repellino. “His condition is stable. It seems as if he fell on his back. He has no cranial lesions, but a microfracture to his jaw. In essence, he fractured his pelvis, his coccyx and some vertebrae. When he came in, he was able to move his legs.” Another medical update is expected tomorrow morning, but Pessotto is considered to be out of danger.

“We are a little more optimistic now, even if the prognosis for a patient with such strong trauma cannot be resolved before 48-72 hours,” added doctor Ottavio Davini this evening.

The reasons behind this mystery fall, which occurred at 11am local time in Turin, are the subject of speculation after unconfirmed reports of treatment for depression or a serious illness. His car keys and mobile phone were found near the window.

“The idea is ridiculous, just like those who sustain it,” slammed Juventus medic Professor Riccardo Agricola.

“I met with Pessotto at half-time of Italy’s match with the Czech Republic in Hamburg,” added FIGC Press Officer Antonello Valentini. “We hugged and he seemed happy. Pessotto has always been a great example for everyone here in terms of competence and professionalism. I really thought this new job at Juventus had given him extra enthusiasm.”

The Bianconeri released a brief statement. “Juventus FC embrace their Team Manager Gianluca Pessotto and cheer him on in this difficult time in the hope to see him back in the side soon.”

The defender is well respected throughout the Italian football community and Inter patron Massimo Moratti also gave his view. “It’s difficult to say anything right now. Pessotto is a good man, certainly a category above most in intellectual terms. His tragedy is something we cannot possibly understand. I hope he gets better and can see life in all its glorious colour again.”

Yet another italian diving(!) :no:

Anyway, sad news, but I really wonder what brought it on. Personal problems or stuff with the club about the scandal and all that shit?

Being depressed doesnt mean you cant smile and seem happy. A smile in on the surfuce, but when your depressed there's a feeling underneath that surface that keeps eating away at you...
Just because someone SEEMS happy at certain moments, doesnt automatically mean he is feeling good about his life overall...

Doctors treating Gianluca Pessotto in a Turin hospital have confirmed that he risked death during the night.

The Juventus team manager, who was rushed to hospital on Tuesday after falling from a window at the club’s headquarters, underwent another operation last night which almost cost him his life.

“Gianluca Pessotto risked dying last night, he was operated on at the limit,” stated professor Antonio Solini.

Police in Turin are investigating the possibility that Pessotto attempted suicide and his wife Reana has today confirmed that her husband has been struggling with depression.

Speaking with the La Repubblica newspaper, she denied claims that her husband was dealing with a serious illness connected with doping.

“There is no truth in that, absolutely none,” she is quoted as saying on repubblica.it. “I want you to tell everybody that. Gianluca was simply stressed, depressed.

“It is also false that there were any problems between us. We had a discussion because we had just organised three days away at Laigueglia with the kids, but he had to work.

“I wanted Gianluca to take a break and I thought it would do him some good. We had already organised everything.

“He hadn’t had a holiday for a year and a half. He was struggling to sleep and wasn’t convinced he had made the right decision in retiring from the game.”

Reana also revealed that her husband was perhaps doubting that he could live up to what was expected after he was recently appointed as the club’s new team manager.

“He feared that he wasn’t up to it,” she added. “But he accepted, although having offers to play on, because of the love he has for Juventus and he thought he had to.”

When asked why yesterday’s traumatic events occurred, she replied: “It was a combination of things: tiredness, melancholy, sadness for what is happening to the club. Gianluca did the worse thing possible.”

Meanwhile, Luciano Moggi, the man at the centre of the Calciopoli debate which could have serious consequences for Juve, has visited Pessotto in hospital.

“I’m here to pray for Gianluca,” he said. “Has this got to do with the scandal? I don’t know.”

Doctors have added that Pessotto’s condition remains serious but stable.

Hes been struggling with depression? So it is most likely suicide. Its a shame that it affected him to the point where he would want to take his own life. Hopefully his condition will remain stable, and he will recover.

The police don't know yet but if he's holding a rosary I doubt someone shoved it in his hand two seconds before throwing him out of the window. If they'd done that he'd have invariably let it go during the fall which he didn't.
