Marchisio to be key player for Juventus

Marchisio to be key player for Juventus

New Juventus coach Luigi Del Neri says he will build his side around midfielder Claudio Marchisio.
Del Neri signed a two-year contract with Juventus last week after helping Sampdoria reach the qualifying rounds of the Champions League and has been charged with reinvigorating a team that finished seventh last season.
Del Neri told Thursday's Gazzetta dello Sport "For the future I am thinking about Marchisio, he's an important player."
The 24-year-old Marchisio is in Italy's 28-man provisional World Cup squad and is seen as the future of a Juventus team that is currently built around Fabio Cannavaro, Gianluigi Buffon and Alessandro Del Piero, who are all aged over 30.
