After winning the 2009 Italian beach soccer championship, Diego jr. has decided to start training with Juve Stabia, playing in the Pro League, second division. This represents a possibility to come back to the professional soccer in Italy. Castellamare di Stabia is located 30 kilometers southeast of Naples, closed to Sorrento.
In an interview with napolimagazine.com, Diego stated: "I am currently training in Castellamare di Stabia. I am trying to reach the best physical fit, since after three months of Beach Soccer, I am not at my best level. I should start well the initial training. I really hope to play with Juve Stabia, since the team is strong and competitive. Several friends like Marco Capparella and Gaetano Grieco play there, I hope I will demonstrate in the team my strengths."
