Marotta: Scuffet has great promise

Beppe Marotta has commented that Simone Scuffet ‘has great promise’, as he enthuses at Juventus’ fitness as a group.

The Old Lady defeated Udinese 2-0 on Monday evening with director general taking a pre-match interview and the subject of conversation the Zebrette’s promising 17-year-old ‘keeper.

“I will say that he has great promise, because whilst he has yet to confirm it, I believe he has all the requirement to do something important in the game,” Marotta told Sky Sport Italia.

“This begins with a quality that I think is enough for him to truly cover the goal excellently.”

Marotta also considered that the Udinese match was the club’s 48th of the season.

“Yes this really is remarkable, the great professionalism shown by the group, an extraordinary group because we have played 47 [sic, now 48] matches so far.

“And then we can even add to that the eight official games played by the national team players. We have demonstrated that whilst we cannot always go at the maximum, we definitely want to round off this season with two objectives that are clearly important.”
