Marotta: ‘Allegri 100% staying at Juventus’

March 7, 2017 - 4:02 pm

Beppe Marotta assures supporters that Max Allegri is 100% remaining at Juventus.

Allegri has been linked with both Arsenal and Barcelona however Juve’s General Manager is confident that the Tuscan native will be in charge next season.

“Is Allegri 100 per cent certain to stay? I think so, right now there are no impediments to that. We’re always very close with Allegri, there’s a great relationship with him.” Marotta  told Mediaset.

“We’re happy with him, and he with us, so the problem doesn’t even arise.”

Marotta turned his attention to high-flying Torino striker Andrea Belotti who is linked with a move away this summer.

“Evaluations start from the moment a player goes onto the market and there are offers,”

“He’s a strong player, he’s Capocannoniere. Torino previously had a Capocannoniere, Ciro Immobile, in their ranks and he didn’t go on to confirm himself as a great player, though he is a good player and I wish him luck, as I do with Belotti.

“Are we following him? We like good football and he expresses it in the best way, but we have a super attack which gives us guarantees for the coming years.”

    Will now Napoli whine that R. Madrid stole the tie from them? No they won´t they all whine only against Juve.

    About the match, oh well they kneeled down and were already done and dusted 2 weeks ago.

    Yet again another Italian team put to ridicule in Europe. Shameless teams put the Italian flag to eb stepped over time and again be it Roma, Arsenal, Fiorentina, they are all the same.

    You are all fired.

    The likes of Sassuolo, Genoa and Atalanta are more deserving of UCL spots, they would do way better than those usual sacrificial lambs.

      I’ve been saying this for a while now, Roma and Napoli have no business in the champions league. Bring back the Milanese clubs and possibly lazio. If atalanta were able to keep their players I’d see them finishing up strong in the group stages of CL. Napoli is a complete joke man, it’s been about 4 years and they haven’t beaten one noteworthy team in CL. It’s a team that’s focused so much on NOW rather than building a lasting team. Their youth squad sucks, the only homegrown player is Insigne, not trying to be overly harsh but jeez couldn’t they look at juventus model since it’s actually working.

        I think they beat Chelsea two or three years ago..once…A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.. Oh, wait.. 😛

        I would only want the Milano teams in CL if they deserve it though. I agree that Roma and Napoli don’t quite cut it in the CL, but at the moment their squad is simply better than the squads Milan/Inter have.

        Atalanta is bound to lose their players anyway, Kessie will move in the summer and perhaps Caldara will join Juve too in the summer, who knows.

        I don’t want to be a party pooper, but using homegrown players isn’t exactly our strong suit either, we only have Marchisio as a true homegrown player. Not including Audero and Mandragora because they haven’t played a single minute so far. Kean hardly counts either at this moment. They seem to just make up the numbers in the squad.

          Valid points may friend! My only complaint against Roma and Napoli is that after the group stage they play like their job is done, I see no drive whatsoever. Atalanta has been the most interesting story in series A this year, more so than sassuolo last year. When I look at their squad they had about 4 classy players they really hit the gas petal this year (caldara, conti, petagna, Gagliardi, Kessie). It gives hopes to the rest of Serie a, I think it’s important to show that there is talent within team ranks and they’ve exemplified this. Kind of went off topic but back on topic! AC Milan has a good squad but half the players are on loan, I doubt they will keep but pasalic and delefoue, even though they should. Our squad is different because we have the capital to purchase classy players whereas the rest of serie a seems to be ok with purchasing players above 25 that had one decent season and letting their talent go to waste…. for the most part.

            Yes indeed, they relish playing those games, but haven’t got the mentality to actually win them. Both of them suffer from an underdog complex or something!

            I like to see offensive minded teams do well. It was Sassuolo last year, it’s Atalanta now. It shows that it is worth it to go for the win, instead of boring us all to death by locking everything down and try counters at best – meaning teams as Crotone or last year’s Frosinone and Carpi. It’s anti football.

            Reality will hit hard in the summer though, I can’t see Atalanta hang on to their players. Gagliardini is already sold, Caldara is a Juve loanee, Kessie expressed his desire to play in the PL, which leaves only Conti and Petagna, who I guess will join bigger teams too – like Fiorentina or Lazio or something.

            Milan has self destructed somewhere in the past ten years in my view. Their old guard has evaporated, they sold their best players (Ibra and Silva) and they are still not healthy in their finances. Little wonder they can only loan what is left on the market and hope for the best..

            You nailed it! If they want to play offensive football they have to believe it and play with determination to the offense.

            If they want to be Italian versions of Barcellona or Bayern they better believe in themselves, if they just don´t because they have acomplex because they are not millionaire and have not the best players then park the bus and score a goal on a counter playing away, and tie at home, and you are through.

      De Laurentiis was actually complaining indeed, what a surprise eh! Claimed that Juve, Milan and Inter have the Gazzetta in their pocket and they only post Napoli hating articles.

    If Marotta say so lol FGJ – Allegri must win against rossoneri, Porto and Doria first, than we will see how he will fight against Napoli, Atalanta and Roma, if he play like against Luigi Del Neri who is by the way Dr for 1:1 I’m not so sure in Marotta’s statement 100% sure – “house of fame” is funny… I put my faith in Cin Cin…Higuaiiin – Wake uuup Golzalooo Gnilan calling .:D

    Totally of topic, but I don’t know where else to post.

    There is a lot of talks of other clubs, especially who does well international and who deserves to be in the CL.

    I for once enjoy when teams like Atalanta are showing that Serie A is more than our beloved dominant Juventus and the few followers.

    My unrelated question is concerning the new owners of Palermo and how much potential you guys see in the club. I know Zamparini has been a unorthodox owner, but Palermo has produced some interesting players over the years such as our own Dybala. Could the club with a more steady management and stable environment become a challenger for the teams fighting for the top 6 spots?

    Allegri will only leave Juventus for the big 3 (Barca, Real, Bayern), other than those 3 what team can possibly offer him more? Not a single one in premier league, PSG is interesting but Juventus is at least on par with them so thats pointless. All these reports linking him to Arsenal are such a joke in my eyes, this is a team that just lost 10-2 to Bayern Munich. Their best player(Sanchez) is pretty much packing his bags in the summer. The business model adopted by Arsenal is a complete failure, not a single player from their academy has become world class. Transfers made have been on the strangest players that provide nothing out the ordinary here. I wouldn’t be mad at Max if he were to leave for something bigger, hell if Barca offer him the job this summer he will probably take it. I can understand that guys, Max has done his part but irreplaceable? he is not folks! Plenty of good coaches in the peninsula!! Di Francesco continues to impress me and I think he is probably the long term solution for us.

      The Bayern result is a reflection on Wenger’s management, not the club. Arsenal’s business model is actually astounding – one of the very best. Win nothing, and still bank 10’s of millions in profit every year. Wenger built The Emirates stadium on that, with nothing more than UCL football every season as the only requirement to maintain the cash flow. Arsenal have lots of cash to buy new players, and also pay Wenger better than Juve pay Max. Never rule that out as the only factors needed to pursuade him to North London. They are a club who could and should be challenging with the best.
