    Over 450 appearances in 12 seasons, the defender proved himself to be one of the very best in history as he captained Juventus to three Scudetto titles and a Coppa Italia win

    One of the greatest ever defenders to wear the Bianconeri and Azzurri shirts, Sandro Salvadore, was born on today’s date in 1939.

    He moved to Turin from Milan, soon becoming captain and talisman of Juventus and leading them to three Scudetto titles in 1967, 1972 and 1973 as well as a Coppa Italia trophy in 1965.

    On the international stage, he narrowly missed out on winning the 1971 Fairs Cup and 1973 Champions’ Cup at club level, but he did achieve glory with the Azzurri, with whom he was a European champion in 1968 as the only Bianconeri man involved.

    Even after leaving his playing career behind, Salvadore remained linked to Juventus as a youth academy coach.

    Sandro Salvadore passed away on 4 January 2007, but his 450 appearances in 12 consecutive seasons with the club will always live on in the memory of the Juve fans who witnessed such a gifted player in action.
