The son of former Juventus goalkeeper Stefano Tacconi has said his father will soon come out of intensive care.
Tacconi senior, who made nearly 400 appearances during nine seasons with the Bianconeri, has been hospital since suffering a stroke on April 23.
However, his son Andrea Tacconi posted a positive update on his Instagram story on Thursday.
It read: “After overcoming another fever, he will probably leave intensive care tomorrow and will be moved to another ward.”
Tacconi, 65, joined Juve from Avellino in 1983, where he arrived as a replacement for legendary Italy goalkeeper Dino Zoff.
During his nine seasons with the Old Lady, he effectively won every trophy available as he claimed two Serie A titles, a Coppa Italia, a UEFA Cup, a Cup Winners’ Cup and a European Cup.
He left to join Genoa in 1992 where he made 50 appearances across all competitions before hanging up his gloves in 1994.
Tacconi was also a member of the Italy squad which finished third at the 1990 World Cup, losing on penalties to Argentina in the semi-final.
