Giuseppe Marotta believes this afternoon’s traditional pre-season friendly in Villar Perosa is a fitting way to celebrate all that is special and unique about Juventus Football Club.
Speaking to the media earlier today, the club CEO said: “Villar Perosa is part of this club's history and it comes with the time-honoured values of the [Agnelli] family and the fans, like their sense of belonging.
“Today marks the traditional start to our season, an event which has seen the likes of Charles, Sivori, Platini, Zidane and Del Piero down the years. It's the best way to demonstrate what it means to love Juventus.
“It's an important day for our new players as well, since it serves as a kind of induction to the Juve world, offering them the chance to observe first-hand the history that needs to be respected and upheld by winning yet more trophies.”
