Juventus president Agnelli urges fans to back new board

New Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has urged fans to back them this summer.

Agnelli was brought in at the end of that campaign as part of an ambitious plan to rebuild the club and make it competitive again.

Writing to the fans on Juventus' official website, Agnelli reassured them that the right steps are being taken.

"Dear fans, a month has passed since I assumed the presidency of Juventus. Many of you have given me encouragement, confidence and support and for that I am truly grateful.

"Football, above all in this summer period, is made up of words, interviews, flights of emotions and sometimes illusions.

"I think that dreams must always be accompanied by reality and sincerity, so today I choose to turn to you through our website to tell you Juventus' priorities in the coming months.

"The team, which impassions all of us, is the fulcrum of our activity and our dedication. Here's why Juventus' most important acquisition of the 2010-11 campaign is without doubt Giuseppe Marotta, a football man and a great connoisseur both of the market and the complex managerial mechanisms of a great club.

"Jean-Claude Blanc and I are guaranteeing to our director general all the necessary support because we can arrive at the end of August with a competitive team to put at the disposition of our new Coach Gigi Del Neri."
