Juve director impressed by Krasic

Juventus director general Giuseppe Marotta claims that he is impressed with how quickly Serbian winger Milos Krasic has settled in Turin.

Krasic joined the Bianconeri for around 15 million euros in the summer from Russian side CSKA Moscow and he has been tipped to fill the boots of former Juve legend Pavel Nedved.

"It wasn't easy [signing Krasic], that's for sure,'' Marotta told the bobsoccer website.''Talks with his former club were difficult. But the major factor in the deal was that Milos wanted to play at Juventus.

"I certainly don't doubt the quality of Krasic, otherwise myself and Marco Naletilic [the player's agent], who led the negotiations on our behalf, wouldn't have fought so hard to make it happen. However, I confess I did not expect that Milos would adapt so quickly; both as a player and a person.''

However, Marotta was coy about signing other players from the Russian market.

"You know my answer to that? Even if I had considered it, I wouldn't say. Let me just say the Russian market, as well as the Ukrainian, is always under supervision," he added.
