Juventus president Andrea Agnelli is delighted with the club's progress.

Agnelli says everything is geared to being successful on and off the pitch.

"We want to keep aiming higher, drawing inspiration from the very best in European and American sport," he commented.

"There are three main sources of income for sports clubs - TV rights, gate receipts and commercial earnings.

"The clubs that lead the way in these areas are Spanish, English and German, in that order, but Juve are on a par with the best clubs in Europe.

"The investments that the club has made in the last two or three years will bear fruit.

"I'm talking about the J-College, which enables our youngsters to combine their academic commitments with their sports activities, the stadium, which makes headlines when it's 'only' 90 per cent full, and the J-Museum, which has already received over 110,000 visitors in just over six months."
