The Dane moved to Turin in a loan deal from Arsenal on the final day of the transfer window, but has yet to get his name on the score-sheet in his six appearances for the club so far.
However, Marotta revealed to Rai Sport that there was no pressure on Bendtner to start banging in the goals, as the forward was signed as an insurance policy in case of injuries to the likes of Mirko Vucinic, Sebastian Giovinco and Fabio Quagliarella.
"Each deal needs economical reasoning before happening, we were not able to make a big money signing last summer but we wanted another striker in case we suffered from a lot of injuries or suspensions, which is the reason we chose to sign Bendtner on loan," he explained.
Disagreeing with Marotta's assesment of him, Bendtner believed he had the ability required to lead the line for Juventus.
"I am not in charge and I think [Antonio] Conte is a great coach," he stated.
"Whoever he puts in the team it is up to him, and I respect that. It is right that Conte makes his own choice but I believe that I am a game-changer and I want to play."
Juventus play Torino for their Serie A fixture this Saturday.
