Massimiliano Allegri says he is confident his new-look Juventus squad can look forward to a bright future on both domestic and European fronts.
The winds of change have swept through Turin during the close season and the departures of Carlos Tevez and Andrea Pirlo, coupled with Arturo Vidal’s expected exit, mean supporters will be watching a different Bianconeri side run out for the start of the 2015/16 season.
Youth has been at the heart of the club’s recruitment policy and the lowering of the squad’s average age, combined with the additions of experienced performers Mario Mandzukic and Sami Khedira, provides Allegri with plenty of food for thought as he plans for another action-packed campaign.
Speaking to the media in Vinovo, the 47-year-old began: “The new arrivals possess different characteristics to those who have departed and it’s my job to enable them to best express themselves on the field of play.
“We’ve brought in some talented youngsters and once the transfer window shuts we’ll have 10 players born between 1991 and 1996. It’s the right way forward to ensure a bright future and planning for this team.”
