Troubled Italian side Juventus held a news conference in Beijing on Friday ahead of Italian Super Cup 2012.
SOUNDBITE: (Italian) Beppe Marotta, General Manager of Juventus:
"I certainly don't need to find out who Massimo Carrera is. He is making his debut as a coach, but he has the Juventus gene in him. He will be available for your questions and I just want to express our support to Antonio Conte and to Angelo Alessio, with the hope that they will be soon fully acquitted."
SOUNDBITE: (Italian) Gianluigi Buffon, Juventus captain and goalkeeper:
"I felt the pain in the warm up we did when we were in Salerno, but if the coach wants me to play, then I will give 100 per cent on the pitch."
SOUNDBITE: (Italian) Massimo Carrera, Juventus coach:
"When you see your team play, you can see what the mood is and you understand what to say and where you want them to go. So tomorrow, when we will all be in the locker room, that's when we will see".
