Verona boss Andrea Mandorlini accepts that the club is likely to sell his best players at the end of the season.
The newly-promoted Gialloblu have been a revelation this term and the 3-2 win over Parma means they have jumped up to fourth in the standings.
However, Mandorlini knows that some of the architects behind their rise will be sacrificed when the big clubs come knocking for their jewels.
“I know, only too well, that it will be hard to keep the likes of Jorginho and Iturbe,” the Coach told Radio Anch'io Lo Sport on Monday.
“However, behind them we are already allowing others to grow and mature.
“We are making use of those youngsters who, for the time being, are given little space but who will have an important future for this club.”
While few are surprised by Jorginho after his development in Verona over the years, forward Juan Iturbe has impressed after spells at Porto and River Plate.
“Iturbe has joined us from an important club,” Mandorlini added. “He has an incredible talent and quality.
“He’s doing really well in a difficult championship.”
Iturbe has two goals in four Serie A games so far this term.
The Gialloblu were considered as one of the favourites to go down, but their promising start means they are now 16/1 to be relegated.
