Juventus History

Juventus was founded on November 1, 1897, by a group of students from the Massimo D’Azeglio Lyceum school in Turin. The club’s original name was Sport Club Juventus, and their first president was Eugenio Canfari. The team initially played in pink and black striped shirts, but in 1903, they changed to the famous black and white stripes that they still wear today. Juventus has a long and storied history in Italian football. They were the first Italian club to win the national championship, which they achieved in 1905. Since then, they have gone on to win the Serie A title a record 36 times, including nine consecutive titles from 2011 to 2020. Juventus has also won the Coppa Italia a record 14 times and the Supercoppa Italiana nine times. In recent seasons, Juventus managed to stay towards the top of the table despite some financial troubles and the loss of key players.

Who Owns Juventus

Juventus are currently owned by the Agnelli family. The Agnelli family is an Italian multi-industry business dynasty family founded by Giovanni Agnelli, one of the original founders of the Flat Motor Company, which became Italy’s largest automobile manufacturer. 

Juventus Manager

Juventus’ current manager is Massimiliano Allegri. Allegri has had a long career managing multiple clubs, such as Aglianese, SPAL, Grosseto, Sassuolo and Cagliari. He then took over at AC Milan in 2010 and won the Serie A and Supercoppa Italiani in 2011. He then joined Juventus in 2014, and during his 5-year stay, he won 5 Serie A titles, 4 Coppa Italias, and 2 Supercoppa Italiana and even finished runners-up in the Champions League twice. In 2021, he returned to Juventus and is still there now, trying to return Juventus to their former glory. 

Biggest Juventus Transfers

  • Gonzalo Higuain from SSC Napoli for £90.00m
  • Matthijs De Ligt from Ajax for £85.50m

Juventus Drama

Juventus received a 15-point deduction last season and was banned from European competitions after being punished for false accounting in 2020. Barcelona and Juventus completed two transfers for Miralem Pjanic and Arthur Melo. Pjanic was sold to Barcelona for £60.00m, and Arthur Melo was bought for £80.60m. These players were not worth the transfer fee and were not actually sold and bought for that much. It was a swap deal where both teams changed the fees so that both clubs could end up with positive capital gains. 

Who Plays For Juventus Now

Juventus have a very strong squad, which includes defenders such as Wojciech Szczesny, Mattia Perin, Bremer, Danilo, Federico Gatti, Daniele Rugani, Andrea Cambiaso, Alex Sandro and Mattia De Sciglio. Their midfield features many players, such as Manuel Locatelli, Adrien Rabiot, Nicolo Fagioli, Weston McKenzie, Paul Pogba, Fabio Miretti, Hans Nicolussi Caviglia, Timothy Weah and Filip Kostic. In attack, they have Federico Chiesa, Samuel Iling Junior, Marko Pjaca, Dusan Vlahovic, Moise Kean and Arkadiusz Milik. 

What Have Juventus Won

Juventus has won numerous trophies throughout their history. They have won the Serie A title 36 times, which is a record in Italy, and have finished as runners-up on 21 occasions. They have also won the Coppa Italia 14 times and the Supercoppa Italiana nine times. In Europe, Juventus has won the UEFA Champions League twice, most recently in 1996, and the UEFA Cup three times.

Juventus 2023/24 Season Predictions

This season, we predict Juventus will push for European football, whether that be Champions League or Europa League. After withdrawing from the Europa Conference League, they will have no European football to worry about this season. They have a solid squad that is more than good enough to win games, and they have a great manager. Their squad lacks the quality to really push for the top of the table, and for that reason, they might just miss out on Champions League football.
