Platini - Too early for Didier

Former France and Juventus star Michel Platini feels Didier Deschamps is not ready to coach the Turin giants.
Platini has responded to the fact that the Monaco boss has been constantly linked with a return to Stadio delle Alpi in the summer if, as has been predicted, Marcello Lippi departs.
"Managing a team like this (Juve) is difficult," Platini told L'Equipe.
"It's one thing training Monaco and quite another one coaching Juve.
"Deschamps isn't ready for Italy.
"I think he will be in two or three years' time."
The Bianconeri have also been linked with the likes of Chievo's Luigi Del Neri, Cesare Prandelli of Parma and Gianluca Vialli, but Deschamps appears to be a strong contender if the job becomes available.
Platini although has a point somewhat in the inexperience aspect of his argument...I think he should back the French player more.Plus maybe he is up to the task and if not thats even better for us...
Anyways it would be intereseting to hear Didiers response.
