Brescia President Massimo Cellino supports Juventus patron Andrea Agnelli by claiming that the Old Lady “would have played behind closed doors”.

The controversies after the postponed Derby d’Italia has led to reactions from the hierarchy of different clubs and the Brescia chief has publicly defended Agnelli.

He feels the Bianconeri President has been getting too much stick for the postponed fixture list and has claimed that Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has only Inter’s interests in mind when he speaks about the tie.

“Juventus are being demonised, everyone is giving it to them,” Cellino told the Corriere dello Sport. “But I spoke with Andrea Agnelli and Juve would have played behind closed doors.

“Marotta has been defending the interests of Inter.”

The dislike and distrust between Inter and Juventus fans obviously extends to the boardroom, where clubs are starting to take sides. With Brescia president Massimo Cellino being so pro-Juventus, it will be interesting to see whether Inter avoids dealing with Brescia in the transfer market over the next year or so.
