Marotta denies Krasic problem

Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta has responded to claims Milos Krasic is no longer wanted at the club by stating there is no issue with the player.
The flying Serb’s agent noted on Monday that Coach Antonio Conte “doesn’t want him anymore” following a period where Krasic has struggled to make the matchday squad.
However, Marotta refuted any such doubts with the transfer window weeks from opening, saying at a Juventus Club awards ceremony: “I haven’t spoken to the lad’s agent, of course what he’s said has been strong. But we’ve spoken with Milos and there’s never been any hint of him being unsettled, so I deny that there’s an issue with Krasic.
“At the moment he’s not finding a place in the team but only because there are team-mates who are in better form. There are no problems with him, just as there aren’t with other players. When the transfer window opens, we’re willing to listen to any cases of unrest, but as it stands no-one’s come forward and asked to leave.”

On the January transfer strategy, Marotta noted: “At the moment we’re not going into anything specific. We’ll have a close comparison with Conte shortly and look at the best options to improve a group which up until now has responded well. Household names won’t be arriving in January, but we’ll look to capitalise on any possible opportunities, whilst always keeping in mind the guidelines given to me by the board.” Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
