Juventus Keen on Hajduk Split Partnership

CroatiaRepresentatives from Italian giants Juventus have been in the Dalmatian city of Split, where they have held talks with Hajduk Split football club about the possibility of the two clubs cooperating together, reports daily Slobodna Dalmacija.

Juventus are looking for a partner club in this part of Europe, and that club may well be Hajduk Split, whose current coach Igor Tudor was one of their former players.

“It’s too early yet to draw any conclusions, we have just met with people from Juventus, this was our first meeting and conversation. There is a mutual interest for cooperation. It goes without saying what Juventus means in the world of football, so much can be learnt from such a club. We sat and chatted, but for now there’s nothing concrete, we have just started (talks),” said Hajduk Split’s chairman Marin Brbić, who confirmed that Tudor’s connection played a part in Juventus’ interest in the club.

Juventus, who have won 29 Siere A  titles, 9 Coppa Italia’s and 6 Supercoppa Italiana’s, is currently coached by Tudor’s former team-mate Antonio Conte. Former Croatian international Tudor was at ‘The Old Lady’ from 1998-2007.

“We will meet with people from Juventus in the near future, most likely next time in Italy,” concluded Brbić.
