Marchisio stunned by Juventus sale of Zanetti to Fiorentina
"I did not expect Cristiano's sale and I haven't spoken to him yet," commented Marchisio.
"I do not understand why he was sold, I really didn't see this coming. He is a friend and helped me so much."
Marchisio added: "In theory I could have more space, but with so many competitions we are in this season, we could both have played regularly."
