    A Juventus delegation enjoyed a special private audience with Pope Francis this afternoon at the Vatican in Rome.  

    President Andrea Agnelli, CEOs Giuseppe Marotta and Aldo Mazzia, manager Antonio Conte and captain Gianluigi Buffon spoke at length about the important role sport has to play in bringing people together.

    Also present at the meeting were Cardinal Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone, Substitute for General Affairs Giovanni Angelo Becciu and First Private Secretary Alfred Xuereb.

    Pope Francis, a well-known football lover and avid fan of Argentinean side San Lorenzo, was presented with Buffon’s goalkeeper jersey signed by the entire first team squad, along with a replica of the Scudetto trophy.
