Del Neri says Juventus fans can be excited about new-look squad

Gigi del Neri says Juventus fans can rightly be excited about the new season ahead.

Juve have revolutionised their squad after finishing seventh last term and make their Serie A bow at the Stadio San Nicola on Sunday.

"I think Juve have the characteristics of pace and quality that matter in modern football," said new coach Del Neri.

"It's not easy to say what we are targeting exactly right now, but I can say for certain that this will be a season of Juventus standard.

"We will step out there respecting Bari, who play with intensity and a high tempo, but they'll be facing a different Juventus compared to the past.

"Considering the injuries to Amauri and Vincenzo Iaquinta, we are forced to play Quagliarella. Jorge Martinez can be used as a forward, but only in certain circumstances.

"Quagliarella is a player who fits in well with our attacking system. I'd like to underline the excellent work done on the transfer market by director general Beppe Marotta and the club."
