The name of Giuseppe Marotta was floated around the future Juventus management, which might go through sweeping changes in the offseason. However, the veteran executive dismissed the rumors saying that he plans to stay at Inter long-term.
He told Sky before the Crotone game: “The possible revolution at Juventus will not involve me. I came here because of an explicit request by president Steven Zhang, and I want to open a winning cycle. It would be beautiful and important to continue here.”
He reiterated the concept in today’s interview with Gazzetta dello Sport: “We have a dream in mind as winning the title next year would allow us to put the second star on the jersey. We have already solved the problem of the coach because Antonio Conte is an absolute guarantee.”
On his departure from Juventus two years ago: “We mutually decided to part ways. I had a transparent dialogue with the ownership, and we were not on the same page, so I decided to take a step back. I think it was something physiological as Andrea Agnelli was fairly new to the job, he is a different type of manager now, and Fabio Paratici was still a kid. Luckily, I am not somebody who dwells on the past, I moved on quickly when Zhang reached out to me.”
Both Conte and Marotta have just a year left on their deals with Inter, but the executive said that the matter would be revisited later. Juventus will have to look elsewhere if they decide to move on from their current managers. Cristiano Giuntoli has been linked to the Bianconeri as well, but he has two more seasons in his pact with Napoli, and Aurelio De Laurentiis is unlikely to free him up.
