(GSM) – Juventus manager Luigi Del Neri believes Javier Matías Pastore will not be the only source of concern for the Turin giants tomorrow evening.
The Argentina international, a reported target for Manchester City, is seen as the main threat for the Juve defense.
But Del Neri maintains his team will not only be on the lookout for Pastore.
Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s highly-anticipated encounter, Del Neri said: “Pastore is a great player. Palermo have many talented and valuable footballers.
“I am thinking about Maccarone, Hernandez, and Miccoli who is coming back. Every Sunday is an exam and Juve must pass the exams.”
When asked whether he will adopt a squad rotation policy, Del Neri said: “We’ve had four days to recover from our last game and that’s sufficient.
“Martinez still isn’t ready. I hope to have him available on Sunday.”
Finally, Del Neri did not confirm whether Alberto Aquilani would start or not against Palermo.
“Eleven players must go on the pitch. Marchisio and Melo are doing well in their roles. Right now that midfield pairing gives me great reliability.
“I don’t know how this season will end, but I am sure of one thing. We will create an important group this season,” he concluded.
