(GSM) – Juventus president Andrea Agnelli wants the team to show its quality through playing well consistently.
Speaking after a tour of Juventus’ new stadium, Agnelli said he never expected the plan to work straight away and admits that the Turin club’s project will need time to switch into high gear.
Following the disappointing 3-1 defeat to Palermo, the Juventus president told journalists: “The present is how we expected it to be,” he said. “We knew a little time is necessary, some months, because the project is getting on its feet.
“The squad is not up for debate. We have focused on youth, so it’s normal that there is less experience. But let’s give it time.”
But Agnelli is aware that the team has the quality necessary to raise their game and remain in form for the long run and was happy to see the team’s determination pay-off after they scored in the last few minutes, despite eventually suffering from defeat.
“The team is conscious of its own quality. It only needs to find continuity. There is harmony. You see that we are creating a group. That can be understood in many ways, including the fact that even yesterday the team fought until the last minute and then went under the curva to receive the fans’ applause.”
Agnelli then turned his attention to the new stadium and reflected his pride in the club’s investment in a top-level ground: “Here you see the Juventus of the future. Today we have visited the building site together with our advisers.
“You can say that this is the first day of the new stadium’s life. It’s an avant-garde ground on a level with the top teams in Europe, open seven days a week. And we are the first to realize this objective in Italy.”
