Soccer-New Juventus CEO aims to grow club on and off the pitch

Serie A - Cremonese v Juventus

ROME (Reuters) - Juventus's new chief executive Maurizio Scanavino said on Wednesday he aimed to help the Serie A club make progress in terms of both trophies and business results.

"Our sporting goals and ambitions don't change, just as our company goals don't change either," Scanavino told reporters after a shareholder meeting to appoint a new board.

"That means combining results on the pitch with sound finances and commercial growth," he said.
