Marotta: 'Juve must try to win'

Director Beppe Marotta is not afraid of Chelsea. “We are Juventus and it is our duty to go for the best result in every competition.”

The Bianconeri return to the Champions League at Stamford Bridge this evening against the trophy holders.

“This is Juventus and it is our duty to go for the best result in every competition,” director general Marotta told Sky Sport Italia before kick-off in London.

“Tonight it is an important test for a group that is new at every level, in terms of players and directors. It is exciting and for many a novelty.

“We have to grow in various aspects and at this stage the Champions League is a series of challenges to be overcome in the group.”

Kwadwo Asamoah was snapped up from Udinese over the summer and is in the starting XI against Chelsea.

“Asamoah is a player who attracted a lot of interest from different clubs, as did Arturo Vidal. The fact he’s playing tonight shows what a versatile player he is who fits our needs.

“We were looking for a young athlete who would settle in quickly to the squad, without forgetting an adequate price.”
