Juventus GM Beppe Marotta denies tension is growing within the squad.

Marotta played down reports that tension and anxiety had hit the squad after defeats to Inter and Milan.

“Nothing happened between Claudio Marchisio and Leonardo Bonucci,” he said of an apparent rift between the two.

“Fabio Quagliarella, meanwhile, was fined but only after a calm discussion with him. He was angry at being substituted in a game where the team were losing and he wanted to help his teammates to get an equaliser. It was an anger that immediately passed.”
