Speech by Gianluca Ferrero
After receiving the No. 1 jersey from Agnelli and Nedved, Gianluca Ferrero‘s excitement was beyond words. Talking about his task as president, he said: “We are committed to building a future for Juventus commensurate with its glorious 125-year history. We will lead Juventus to the glory of the sporting level and become the most powerful Italian football club.”
However, Ferrero’s immediate task is to comprehensively manage and rectify the club’s financial situation. “As you all know, challenges await us in the coming months,” he said. “As a board of directors, we believe that we have the experience, competence and determination to defend Juventus before all sectoral institutions, be it criminal, sporting or civil.”
“From beginning to end, we will maintain a rigorous but not arrogant and calm attitude. We will respect all those who are asked to judge us, but we will seek equal respect at the same time.”
