Juventus: La Vecchia Signora


Hello Guys!

Welcome to my new story. Unfortunately, my last story didn’t quite work out for me in terms of enjoyment. Maybe because I’m an Arsenal fan and I was managing Tottenham… I dunno.

Anyway, as you can tell by the title, I shall be….



JUVENTUS!!!

As their current manager…



Antonio Conte

The reason I’ve chosen Juventus is because Italian football has fallen off the pedestal over the past few years and with the whole match fixing scandal, Juve aren’t the European force they once was.

My task?

To make Juventus the most successful club in world football!

Enjoy!
Good luck with this

Home Kit Away Kit Third Kit

Stadium




Juventus Stadium
(41,000 capacity)

Captain




Gianluigi Buffon

Key Players




Arturo Vidal

The funky haired Chilean has quickly become one of the best all-round midfielders in the world and will be key to any success we may have.



Carlos Tevez

Perhaps just gone past his peak, Tevez can still pull a twig or two in Serie A and will be vital for any title challenge we mount.



Paul Pogba

The former Manchester United man is undoubtedly one of the world’s biggest prospects and should become our central figure in a few seasons.

Legends




Alessandro Del Piero

Del Piero epitomises Juventus. The Italian veteran, now at Sydney FC, made a total of 513 league appearances for Juve throughout 19 seasons, scoring a total of 208 goals.



Zinedine Zidane

Zizou burst onto the scene at Juve after a terrific spell at Bordeaux. The former World Player of the Year winner played 151 times on his way to two Serie A titles before moving to Real Madrid for a then record breaking €75 million.



Marcelo Lippi

Lippi is arguably Juve’s greatest ever coach, winning five Serie A titles, one Coppa Italia and one UEFA Champions’ League title as well as six other honours.

Rivals


Inter Milan
Torino
AC Milan
Fiorentina

Great layout and update. Vidal and Pogba will be big stars for you :)

CONTE RUES LACK OF FUNDS



Juventus manager Antonio Conte has admitted the Serie A champions will have to sell players in order to buy due to a lack of funds.

Conte feels a lower budget could put them behind their competitive rivals, Roma and Napoli, and that Juve fans can expect to see departures if they are to strengthen further.

“Economically, it’s not the best time for us. It’s not the best time for many Italian clubs and naturally, we may have to say goodbye to a few players if we wish to add further.

“It’s a disadvantage for us, certainly. We want to retain the Serie A title and go even further than we did last season in the Champions’ League.

“But we can’t compete with Roma and Napoli’s financial power, let alone the likes of Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea.”


Conte has however admitted that he is in search of new players, in particular midfielders.

“I feel the midfield is an area we should reinforce. We have top players in midfield so we need to add further depth in order to physically protect the likes of Pirlo.

“I’ve had a look at a few names but it has been a completely brief search. Hopefully the market flow will allow us to get one or two midfielders in.”


Juventus has been linked with a loan deal for Chelsea’s Kevin De Bruyne as well as a swoop for Sporting’s Adrien Silva.
Hopefully you get the funds you need.

QUAGLIARELLA WANTS OUT



Fabio Quagliarella has told Juventus he expects to depart this summer after supposedly falling down the pecking order upon the signings of Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez.

The Italian failed to hold down a permanent spot in the Juventus team in the past and is expected to remain in the same situation now as he seeks an exit from Turin.

Juventus has rejected two loan offers for Quagliarella from two unconfirmed clubs and has led to the 30 year old reportedly pleading for a deal.

Among the clubs believed to be interested in Quagliarella are Benfica, Newcastle United and Lazio, with Juve now thought to be reconsidering the offers.

Quagliarella has spent the past three seasons at Juventus after joining from Napoli, playing 67 times and scoring 22 goals.
Just caught up on this, good story :) and personally, I don't like Quag but it's up to the boss :)
