Bettega: ‘Juve will get the fans back’

Posted on 29/03/2010


Juventus vice-general manager Roberto Bettega believes his side will win the fans back after a turbulent season in Turin.

The club’s ultras called a strike on Sunday, leaving the Curva Scirea practically empty.

However, a few did turn up but only to throw eggs at the team bus.

One of them was actually able to slap Jonathan Zebina.

Speaking to, Bettega said: “The protest was outside the stadium. The fans in the stands behaved in a correct manner, but they also helped the team when there was need.

“We all know that we are not having a great season and even this victory cannot hide the problems.

“Now we want to try and get our fans back as well as our fitness and the injured players.

“We had many absentees against Atalanta, but it’s not right to throw this into the mix and diminish the work done by those who played.

“Now we’ll also have a way of working with more tranquility as we don’t have any more midweek commitments,” he concluded.
