Juve keep Liverpool off Paratici

There are reports Juventus have shot down Liverpool’s attempts to poach technical director Fabio Paratici.

The Sun suggested this week that they were looking at Paratici as a replacement for director of sport Damien Comolli.

According to the Italian media, there was some truth in this approach, but Juve slammed the door on any potential departure.

Paratici is the right-hand man of director general Beppe Marotta and contributed to constructing the Scudetto-winning side.

His contract ties him to the Turin giants until June 2013.
