Roberto Baggio, whose missed penalty kick in the World Cup final clinched the championship for Brazil, has not been a leader for Juventus in the Italian league, team owner Gianni Agnelli said.

Baggio, the world player of the year in 1993, has spent four seasons with Juventus, one of the largest clubs in the league, leading the club in scoring over that span.

“He has given Juventus moderate achievements, but (French star Michel) Platini was something else. He offered more as a team player,” Agnelli said, referring to the captain who led Juventus to the 1985 European Champions Cup title.
