Marotta: 'Juve winning project'

Director general Beppe Marotta assures Juventus will share Antonio Conte’s vision to make them competitive in Europe too.

The team is driving around Turin in an open-top bus to celebrate their second consecutive Scudetto.

“It is extraordinary being part of Juventus history,” said the transfer guru. “We knew it would be difficult to repeat ourselves, but we experience this with emotion and joy because the work done has been extraordinary.”

Coach Conte warned in his Press conference yesterday that he’d need to sit down and discuss their plans before confirming his future.

“There is a great rapport with Conte and the whole club. I would define Juventus as a winning project. Clearly there is always the desire to win again and we won’t forget that.

“Conte wants to win and it’s only right that all together we work to achieve that. We have created a project and want to continue this positive trend, as we had originally thought it would take us two or three years to lift silverware.

“In Europe there is still a gap to be covered, as Bayern Munich right now are an unreachable war machine. We will absolutely try to breach that gap with Conte.

“There is also an economic crisis in Italy and guidelines the club has to respect, but that doesn’t mean we’re being remissive. We want to have winning ideas.

“People keep talking about us signing a ‘top player,’ but I’d like to point out Juventus have still scored more goals than anyone else in Serie A this season.

“We will sit down with President Andrea Agnelli and Conte to analyse the situation we have today in order to create a tomorrow as protagonists. Juventus must continue to win, that is our imperative.”
