"We are very happy to be here, all together, after the pandemic, in what is the year of an important anniversary such as the centenary of our family together with Juventus. Villar Perosa certainly does Juventus good, as shown by our history, this exceptional decade under the presidency of Andrea and the many titles we have won in these 100 years." - these were the words of John Elkann, President of Stellantis, Ferrari and Exor, on the sidelines of the Juventus event.
"We have won 38 Scudetti with the men's First Team, five with the women's team, we are the team with the most World Cup winners and we have all the Cups we have competed for in our trophy cabinet - this must drive us on to look to the future. Now we must be careful because compared to the past Serie A is more competitive, with opponents like Inter, a very solid side, Milan, the defending champions, and Roma. It must be said that even in Europe the level of competitiveness has risen a lot."
On today's match, he added, "It's nice to see so many great players who have been here for some time on the pitch. Today we've also seen a competitive Under 23 side, which plays well and has elements that could be experimented with in the first team. Di Maria will give a lot to Juve and Italian football."
