Marotta: Juve are already in the future

Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta believes the progress the club has made on its new stadium means the Old Lady is already in the future.

Marotta was drawn on the subject when asked for his reaction to the news that Bologna's match against Chievo had been postponed because of adverse weather conditions.

Earlier in the day, the President of the League, Maurizio Beretta, had said: "We need to move towards grounds that are privately owned or profoundly restructured.

"We have the most obsolete stadiums in Europe. Few pitches in the north have under-soil heating."

Appearing on La Domenica Sportiva, Marotta said: "Juve are already in the future. The new stadium is a motive of great pride for Juventus and a great asset for the club."

Marotta was then asked for his opinion of Juventus' new project, which he has helped implement since the summer.

"The strength of the collective is really notable. We need to take into great consideration the injuries. If we manage to recover players one Sunday after the other we will be ever more dangerous.

"The negative moment came with the change of Coach [in the spring]. Juventus have been the most radical in terms of modifications. Twelve new players arrived," he concluded.
