PostSubject: Juventus Profile   Mon Aug 25, 2008 2:33 am


The Old Lady - La Vecchia Signora - of Italian football were founded in 1897 and originally wore pink shirts. The club became the Bianconeri after adopting Notts County’s black and white colours in 1903, winning their first championship two years later. The Turin club notched up five consecutive titles between 1930-35 and dominated Italian World Cup squads in 1934, ’38, ’78 and ’82.

Before the Calciopoli scandal struck in the summer of 2006, Juventus had never been relegated from Serie A and were the most successful side in Italy with 29 championships, nine Italian Cups, two European Cups, three UEFA Cups, two Intercontinental Cups, two European Super Cups, four Italian Super Cups and a Cup-Winners Cup. Two of those Serie A titles were stripped and humiliating demotion ordered.

With the so-called Triade of directors dismissed, a new board was appointed. And despite a mass exodus of star players, Juventus won the Serie B title at the first attempt and finished third in Serie A on their return to the top flight.

Stadio Olimpico

Address: Corso Sebastopoli 123, 10134 Turin
Capacity: 25,442
Pitch dimensions: 105m x 68m
Location: Turin

Juventus moved into the Olimpico in 2006. Formerly the Stadio Comunale, the stadium’s first event was the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony on February 10, 2006.

The original Stadio Comunale, located in the southern district of Santa Rita, opened in 1933 and was initially named after Mussolini. It held matches in the 1934 World Cup and was used by both Juventus and Torino prior to the construction of the Stadio Delle Alpi in 1990.

The new structure has no running track in order to create a more intense atmosphere and better visibility. It also has a revolutionary pitch covering system to adapt to the conditions and 80 CCTV cameras filming the crowd in case of disturbances.

Juventus All Time XI

Dino ZOFF 1972-83
Became a national hero when, at the age of 40, he captained Italy to World Cup glory. But Zoff had continually proved to be a consistent performer for Juventus prior to that triumph when he established himself as No 1 in Turin for 11 years after joining from Napoli in 1972. Won six Serie A titles, two Italian Cups and a UEFA Cup. Would later have a brief coaching stint with the club before going on to mange the Azzurri.

Gaetano SCIREA 1974-86
Elegance personified. A sweeper from the old school who would become an international regular for over a decade. He read the game as if he had studied it the night before. Scirea was a model professional and born leader. Tragically died in 1989 in a road accident while on a scouting mission for the club in Poland. Was a key member in the Azzurri side that won the 1982 World Cup. Made 377 League appearances for Juve.

Antonello CUCCUREDDU 1969-81
Picked up a staggering six championships with Juve between 1971 and 1981. A powerful defender who went on to win international honours. Started his career in Serie C with Torres in 1967, before joining Brescia for one term a year later.

Claudio GENTILE 1973-84
They don’t build defenders like this anymore. Uncompromising stopper who became a regular for the Bianconeri in his second season in Turin. Signed from Varese, Gentile made man marking an art form. Like Cuccureddu won six Serie A titles. Gentile played a starring role in the 1982 World Cup triumph.

Antonio CABRINI 1976-89
Joined Juventus in 1976 from Atalanta and instantly became a hit on the domestic and international scene. Equipped with a graceful left foot, many believe Juventus have never really replaced him. Another member of the 1982 World Cup winning team, he made history by missing a penalty in the Final against West Germany.

Marco TARDELLI 1975-85
A midfield general who joined the Bianconeri in 1975 from Serie B side Como. His impact was so immense that, less than a year later, he had already made his full international debut in a 3-1 win over Portugal. A veteran of five Scudetto triumphs and a key figure in Juve’s European success in the early 1980s. Went on to both play and Coach Inter.

Giampiero BONIPERTI 1946-61
An attack-minded midfielder who holds a club record of 444 appearances - with 178 goals - in Serie A. Originally started his career as a striker before being slowly moved into a deeper position. Would go on to become club captain and play for the Azzurri 38 times. Also became President of the club before quitting in the 1990s.

Zinedine ZIDANE 1996-01
Joined Juventus in 1996 from Bordeaux. The talented Frenchman would quickly establish himself as the world’s best player. Won two championships, a European Super Cup, a World Club Cup and an Italian Super Cup. Left for £48m to join Real Madrid where he hoped to fulfil his ambition of winning the Champions League after finishing runner-up with the Old Lady on two occasions.

Michel PLATINI 1982-87
The most influential player in Juve’s recent history. A true No 10 and midfield genius who could score more often than most strikers and hit passes of 40-50 yards to a teammate’s feet. European Player of the Year from 1983 to 1985 and an important cog in the success of the Bianconeri and the French national side.

Omar SIVORI 1957-65
Volatile South American forward with the scoring skills of John Charles, who could easily replace Sivori in this line-up, and the disciplinary record of Paolo Montero. Netted 134 League goals for the club in the late 1950s and early 60s. Finished as Capocannoniere in 1960 with 27 goals and scored six in Juve’s 9-1 defeat of Inter in 1960-61.

Roberto BAGGIO 1990-95
For the early part of the 1990s Roberto Baggio was Juventus. Having signed on the eve of the 1990 World Cup Finals for a world record £8m, his sale led to riots in the streets of Florence. A pony-tailed genius who played his best football in Turin, Baggio ended his stay in 1995 when the club were crowned champions of Italy.
