Giancarlo Ferretti back?

After the disappointment in late 2005 of SonyEricsson, it could be the time for Giancarlo Ferretti to return. The former Team Manager of Fassa Bortolo has been at the Tirreno-Adriatico where it has been discovered that he may be putting a team together for 2008.

Ferretti, or the 'Iron Sergeant,' has been head of some amazing squads in the past. Ferretti has been a beloved and feared mentor for many big names in cycling. Rolf Sorensen, Pascale Richard, Gianni Bugno, Johan Museeuw, Paolo Bettini, Gilberto Simoni, Ivan Basso and Alessandro Petacchi have all been shaped by his leadership.
