Juve 'have super-ambitious plan'

Juventus “will present a super-ambitious plan in June,” promised patron John Elkann. “We are looking long-term for the next few years.”

The Turin giants have been without silverware since the Calciopoli scandal saw them demoted in 2006.

This season they are in the running for fourth place, but also face the real risk of not even qualifying for the Europa League.

“Exor have the utmost support for Juventus and we will present a super-ambitious plan in June,” said President of the Agnelli family business Elkann.

“Yesterday's meeting with club President Andrea Agnelli had a wide scope to see what we are working on.

“The plan will be presented in June and is above all ambitious as we are looking long-term for the next few years. I repeat, Exor has absolute support for Juventus.”

The first step has already been taken this week, as Alessandro Del Piero signed a contract extension in the new stadium that will be used next season.

“I am happy that Del Piero used this venue to put pen to paper,” continued Elkann. “It's a very positive image, because in some ways it opens up to the future.

“It's great to know Alex will be a part of this future.”
