Juve expect Sissoko stay

December 15, 2010

Juventus are confident Mohamed Sissoko will be going nowhere in the January transfer window.

The Mali international has struggled to hold down regular first-team football of late, forcing him to settle for a place on the bench.

His lack of activity has led to speculation suggesting he could soon be on his way out of Turin.

This is not the first time such talk has surfaced, though, and the midfielder has always remained loyal to Juve in the past.

The Serie A giants are confident that will prove to the case again, with Sissoko giving no indication that he is looking to move on.

"If he is happy to stay, we will not sell him," Juve's general manager Giuseppe Marotta told France Football.

"It will be entirely up to him.

"We have a good relationship with Sissoko at the moment and he has never asked to leave."
