Elkann: Italian football needs Juventus to succeed

Juventus powerbroker John Elkann insists their 15 points penalty won't hurt the club's reputation.

Elkann is the boss of Exor, Juve's parent company.

He said, "Juventus is the most loved and followed Italian team: it represents our national football.

"I hope that together with the other teams and the government we can change football in our country, to build a sustainable and ambitious future.

"Juventus is not the problem, but it is and will always be part of the solution.

"Here the future of Serie A and of Italian football is at stake, which is becoming marginal and irrelevant."
