Jean Claude Blanc Relishing Manchester City Rumble

Posted on 27/08/2010


Juventus CEO Jean-Claude Blanc is confident the club can progress through their Europa League group, picking out Manchester City as the biggest threat.

The Old Lady will also take in sights in Salzburg and Poznan on her travels around the continent. And Blanc remains upbeat, warning the fans to behave following past troubles involving Mario Balotelli when he played for Inter.

“We will find an Italian flavour in Manchester City with Balotelli and Roberto Mancini. These will be quality games, but we cannot think about who will be on the pitch too much,” Blanc told the press.

“We are in an important group, perhaps the most difficult. I hear Lech Poznan are tough, and Salzburg won all their group games last term.

“We hope our fans can adopt fair play attitudes during the new season. We have to show that Italian football is growing.”
