Juve signings useful, not decisive

Nicola Legrottaglie doesn’t expect Juventus’ new arrivals to make a telling difference to the side.

The Old Lady, for whom Legrottaglie used to play for, netted three players in January – Roma’s Marco Borriello, Simone Padoin of Atalanta and Sevilla’s Martin Caceres.

“The January signings won’t change the balance of the side,” the now Catania defender told Tutto Juve.

“They will be useful over the course of the season, but the protagonists who have dragged Juve along during the first half of the campaign will remain the same.”

Juve strengthened their position at the top of the table this week after their one point advantage over Milan remained despite their postponed game at Parma.

“Milan’s loss to Lazio could give Juve an important advantage,” the former Chievo Verona stopper continued.

“Milan now can’t mess up any more games, whereas Juventus are playing as a team. They are a collective.

“Right now Juve are too strong for everyone else. It’ll be hard for anybody to takes points of them, especially in Turin.”
