"Important for us to stay in all the competitions. We put in a good performance tonight"
"We put in a good performance and we're glad to have made it through to the next round because we want to go all the way. It's important for us to stay in all the competitions so that those who are featuring less get more opportunities to play."
Marrone was given his chance tonight and he grabbed it with both hands. Fielded at centre-back once again, Luca orchestrated the rearguard with authority, built play from the back and kept Cagliari's strikers under wraps: "It's up to the boss where he wants to play me. All I have to do is make sure I'm ready when called upon. It's not as if I've forgotten how to play in midfield though, because I play there in training and for Italy U21s."
Juventus Stadium welcomed back and paid homage to Antonio Conte this evening: "You could sense the crowd's affection for him from out there on the pitch. We're delighted to have him back with us because he's such an important presence. He made his presence felt during the break today too!"
