      The former Juventus midfielder famous for his speed around the field and his glorious celebration after scoring for Italy in the Spain ’82 final turns 59 today

      Marco Tardelli, a legend both in the hearts of Juventus fans and in the annals of Italian football in general, celebrates his 59th birthday today.

      Nicknamed the “Schizzo” (roughly translating as darter, or dasher) in his 1975-1985 Juventus days, he won all the European cups, five Scudetto titles and two Coppa Italia trophies in the black and white stripes.

      He is also fondly remembered on the international stage: he scored the second goal in Italy’s emphatic 3-1 win against West Germany in the 1982 World Cup final, but it was what he did afterwards that has become an icon of Italian football.

      His celebration - an ecstatic, powerful cry whilst waving his arms and running towards the supporters - was an extraordinary demonstration of pure joy, and will never be forgotten by all the Italian fans who shared his bliss on that memorable day.

      All associated with Juventus Football Club wish Marco many happy returns.
