Marotta on Milan and Krasic

Posted on 29/10/2010


Juventus director general Giuseppe Marotta has underlined the importance of the Milan game and again defended Milos Krasic.

The Old Lady travel to San Siro tomorrow night in an Italian classic without the suspended Serbian winger.

“Milan are doing really well and are in a League position of envy,” said the former Sampdoria official.

“That’s why if we get a result at San Siro, with a good performance, then it would be doubly important.

“Not only would it bring a point or three points, but it would strengthen our ambitions for the season.”

Krasic, a summer signing from CSKA Moscow, is, as it stands, out of the game after he picked up a two-match ban for diving to win a penalty at Bologna last weekend.

“No matter how the appeal goes, we feel strongly penalised because Krasic’s comportment can’t be deemed as unsportsmanlike,” Marotta added.

“We have closely examined the images and can confirm that the penalty is dubious, but it is not anti-sporting.

“That’s why we appealed, hopeful that the judges will overturn the decision.

“Nevertheless, we are convinced that whoever goes on to the field of play can replace those players missing through injury or suspension.”

A decision on Krasic’s appeal is expected at some stage today.
