Claudio Marchisio’s father makes it clear that the Juventus midfielder won’t be leaving the Bianconeri in the summer.
A fan favourite at La Vecchia Signora, Marchisio has only featured for the Turin giants 15 times in all competitions this season as he only recently recovered from a knee injury.
Stefano Marchisio spoke with juvenews.eu about his son and his future with the Bianconeri.
“Claudio is calm and for a few months has been in good shape, working hard and ensuring he is always ready, but then the Coach makes his decisions.
“If it were up to me, I’d make it like basketball with unlimited changes to increase the intensity of games, but I know that’s a utopian vision. Everyone wants to play, but that is football.
“I always hope that Juventus will win and Claudio plays, but it depends on a thousand different factors”.
Stefano made it clear that Marchisio won’t be moving abroad.
“Claudio still has another two years on his contract, as he wants to respect, because he cares for the club. Many untrue things have been said. People already thought we were in Germany, England or the United States.
“If the club says that Claudio is no longer part of the project, then we’ll start worrying about it”.
Rumours started to circle that Marchisio was moving to the MLS in America because of his social media exchanges with Sebastian Giovinco and Andrea Pirlo.
“He’s been exchanging tweets with them for two years. When he read those stories on the transfer market, he burst out laughing”.
Stefano, who acts as his Claudio’s agent insisted that the situation could change in the summer.
“As with every workplace, when you are not happy, over the long run the drip, drip fills the glass and it overflows, so you start looking around.
“The glass hasn’t overflowed yet. Claudio loves all his fans and is very happy at Juventus. I have faith, because I think he’ll have his chances.
“We’re getting towards the summer, there’s the World Cup in Russia and perhaps those who are looking ahead to that tournament will run a little less and pull out of challenges”.
