Winning Is In Our DNA, Juventus President Agnelli Reveals

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has disclosed that winning is in the club’s DNA adding that opponents also see the Old Lady in the same light.

Agnelli further pointed that Italian clubs must performance better on the European scene to avoid losing prestige. He was speaking at the Chamber of Deputies in Rome. In his words, he said: “Juve only exist to win,”

“I don’t say it with arrogance but rather ambition. Our opponents also think the same way.” Agnelli stated.

He was also full of praise for the club’s executives. He said: “These men make the difference: without Marotta, Nedved and Paratici, nothing would’ve been possible. The group makes the difference.

“Italy must be watchful of its UEFA ranking because we risk losing fourth position: in the 2019-2020 campaign, we risk being fifth in Europe.

“Football’s grown a lot, but the rules are still the same as those in the 1950s. The NFL is the example that football should follow.

“2010-11 was the worst financial year in Juve’s history, but we started again from there.

“Humility and dedication are the underlying principles of our history. Now we want to make it seven, eight Scudetti in a row.” he concluded.

Juventus have outperformed the other Italian clubs in the last decade with six successive Italian Serie A titles and two UEFA Champions League (UCL) finals in three years.
