In an exclusive interview with TuttoJuve, Francesco Branchini, the agent of Fabio Miretti, shared intriguing details about his client’s decision to remain at Juventus and shed light on some aspects of the young footballer’s personality.
Fabio Miretti has had a strong start to the season with Juventus, showing increased awareness of his role within the team. However, at the beginning of the season, rumors circulated about a potential transfer for the young talent to smaller clubs.
Agent Branchini confirmed that many clubs had expressed interest in Miretti, but the player’s desire was clear: he wanted to experience a season as a key player.
Branchini stated, “He was aware that Juventus couldn’t guarantee him a starting spot, so he made himself available to consider other options.”
However, the Juventus management, along with coach Massimiliano Allegri and Sporting Director Giuntoli, explicitly expressed that Fabio Miretti was considered untouchable. His stay in Turin was thus confirmed, and the young talent appears content with his choice.
Branchini shared further insights into Miretti’s personality, describing him as ‘an old-school character’ who never displays a wrong attitude. Miretti has demonstrated great mental maturity and a fantastic mindset.
The agent also highlighted the crucial support from Miretti’s family and girlfriend, who back him without adding undue pressure.
Regarding the relationship between Fabio Miretti and Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, Branchini explained that it is a very formal one: “The Mister is the teacher, and Fabio is the student.”
Nevertheless, there is much cordiality and mutual respect between the two. Miretti greatly appreciates Allegri’s coaching style and appears to be in sync with his coach.
Finally, Agent Branchini spoke about Miretti’s role within the team. He confirmed that the central midfield position is the right fit for the young player.
While Miretti often played further forward last season as an alter ego to Di María with defensive responsibilities, he is now emerging as a modern midfielder with an impressive shot and superior football intelligence.
Branchini emphasized that Miretti always strives to do the right thing and play for the team, even if his goal-scoring statistics may not fully reflect it at the moment.
Fabio Miretti’s continued stay at Juventus appears to be the right choice for both the player and the club. With his commitment and exceptional mentality, Miretti is poised to become an increasingly integral part of the future of the Bianconeri.
