Motta wants Juve opportunity

Marco Motta is working hard to break into the plans of Juventus boss Antonio Conte, his representative has stated.

Motta is seen as the second choice right-back in Turin behind summer signing Stephan Lichtsteiner and he wasn't even included in the party for tonight's match against Fiorentina.

"Juventus have a lot of players in their squad and not everyone can be selected," agent Beppe Bozzo told Tutto Juve.

"This time it was Marco's turn to sit out, but it is now up to him to win back the faith of the Coach. The only way to do that is to work hard in the week.

"We are talking about a professional and he gets paid to do his job, that is to train hard, to give 100 per cent and be totally ready when he's called upon.

"Marco understands the situation in Turin, but he has a great desire to get himself noticed."

Motta's lack of use is leading to suggestions that the man who Juve signed outright from Udinese in the summer could be sold in January.

"A lot of things can happen in football," added Bozzo. "However, it's not right to talk about the transfer market in October."
