Marotta up for award

Juventus chief Beppe Marotta is battling his Real Madrid and Manchester City counterparts in the World Football Summit Industry Awards.

The trophy for Best Executive will be handed out in a ceremony in Madrid on Monday.

It goes to “the executive who has made a change for the benefit of the institution, has made the most efficient use of its resources and has achieved greater impact according to their capabilities.”

The candidates have been whittled down to just three and one of them is Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta.

His rivals are Real Madrid chief Jose Angel Sanchez and Manchester City’s Ferran Soriano.
