Blog: The new Juventus

Juventus could have a new management structure for next season. Serafino Ingardia believes they have no other option but to change

While everybody is wondering when this crisis will be over for Juve, there seems to be plenty of movements behind the scenes at Corso Galileo Ferraris.

Juve’s failure this season hasn’t been only related to their negative results but more importantly to the directors’ inability to deliver for one of Italy’s most prestigious sides.

The Old Lady was once a side everybody feared both nationally and internationally. It wasn’t just because of their team but also because of their board.

Solid as a rock, the Bianconeri would always hold the upper hand in any sort of debate or negotiations. Backed by the Agnelli family, they were the elite amongst the best in Europe.

Now though things have changed radically. As Marco Tardelli rightly pointed out, this Juventus is the result of the directors’ [woeful] work. These men in charge have been handed a Ferrari to drive while they should have started off with a Fiat 500.

I am talking specifically about President Jean-Claude Blanc and sporting director Alessio Secco. Juve are now paying the price for the errors committed by a tennis expert and a former Press officer.

“They should just be honest, admit their errors and resign,” claimed Luciano Moggi. It’s hard to disagree with him at this stage when Juve have no project for the future.

A revolution in the board room in Turin is simply needed. If Marcello Lippi became the President, like many believe, it would be a good start.

But the key point will be an experienced sporting director – someone who knows about football. Surely for the Old Lady it won’t be too difficult to tempt either Pietro Leonardi or Pantaleo Corvino to leave Parma and Fiorentina respectively. That is unless Juve’s charm has faded already.

Juve plan big structural changes

Tuesday 9 February, 2010

Tuttosport understands Juventus are planning to completely change the structure of the club with Marcello Lippi becoming President in October.

The current board has taken most of the flak for Juventus's disastrous season. The Bianconeri appear to have gone backwards this year despite heavy investment in the transfer market.

They were tipped as genuine title contenders in the summer, but currently lie seventh in Serie A, out of the Champions League and Coppa Italia.

The re-introduction of Roberto Bettega as vice-general manager is said to be the first phase of Juventus's so-called reconstruction.

Tuttosport believes the second and third phases will start in the summer when Jean-Claude Blanc steps down as President and reprises his role as the club's chief executive, charged with commercial operations.

Immediately below him, there are plans to hire one of Italy's most famous transfer experts, either Beppe Marotta, Giorgio Perinetti or Pantaleo Corvino.

One of them will apparently flank Alessio Secco, Juventus's existing director of sport.

Moggi says ‘yes’ to Leonardi

Wednesday 10 February, 2010

Luciano Moggi has given his seal of approval to reports that Juventus could hire Pietro Leonardi as their new director general.

The Parma official is being linked with a summer move as rumours of a structural revolution in Turin gather pace.

Moggi held the same position with the Old Lady until Calciopoli demise in 2006 and he thinks Leonardi would be a good appointment.

“Leonardi is certainly a good guy, someone who does his work very well,” stated the controversial figure.

“However, I don’t know of any talks that are going on with regard to these stories, so I can’t confirm or deny the speculation.

“I simply don’t know if he will be the next director general of Juventus.”

The role is currently held by President and Chief Executive Officer Jean-Claude Blanc, with Alessio Secco acting as Sporting Director.

Fiorentina’s Pantaleo Corvino, Beppe Marotta of Sampdoria and Bari’s Giorgio Perinetti have also been associated with the position.

Before Moggi could come back, someone needs to wrestle control of the club from Elkann. Do you guys remember the scandal in 2005 when Lappo was caught high on crack with a tranny in a hotel room? He blamed Moggi for the leak into the media. If Moggi did leak it, he probably knew what tools the Elkann's were. They blamed the Calciopoli debacle squarely on him too. Truth is, he was the only one who knew how to run the team to the point where it was impenetrable, until all the blame fell square on his shoulders to protect their interests. I hate these Agnelli clones!!

Juventus confirm 11 for next year

Thursday 11 February, 2010

Juventus have apparently confirmed the 11 players they aren't prepared to sell in the summer. As for the rest, they can leave.

The Bianconeri have already started the re-building process after a terrible season. They currently lie seventh in Serie A and have nothing to play for other than the Europa League and qualification for next year's Champions League.

A lot of attention has fallen on the competency of the board in recent months, but vice-general manager Roberto Bettega is said to be already working on the composition of next year's squad, which promises to be radically different from the existing one.

La Gazzetta dello Sport understands Mauro Camoranesi and David Trezeguet will be leaving Turin. They are both 32 and have one year left on their current deals, so it's the last chance for the Bianconeri to cash in on their talents.

Juventus are also said to be reluctant to give Fabio Cannavaro the option of playing another year while Fabio Grosso is expected to be in the departures lounge, together with Tiago and Molinaro who left the club on loan in January.

Martin Caceres and even Antonio Candreva are also apparently in limbo as the board is unsure whether they in fact deserve a permanent place in Turin.
