Marrone commits to Juventus

Luca Marrone says he will remain at Juventus for the rest of the season despite having made only five League appearances.

“I certainly won’t be on the move this month,” stated the 22-year-old. “Then, in June, we’ll evaluate the situation again.

“I’ve spoken with the Coach and with the club,” he added. “We all believe that it is better for me to play 10 games for a big club like Juventus instead of 30 for another team.

“Staying here will help me to grow in terms of dealing with certain types of pressure.”

Marrone is a central midfield playmaker, but he’s been used as an alternative centre-back in the side’s three-man defence this season.

“I’m a better midfielder than a vice-Leonardo Bonucci,” Marrone explained. “I need to become more ‘nasty’ in defence.”
