Juventus played their first competitive match on 11 March 1900. Twenty-one years later Giovanni Agnelli, one of the most important men in Bianconeri history, was born.
L'Avvocato – as he was affectionately known – ran the club from 1947 to 1953, but after stepping down as president he remained forever alongside his beloved Juventus.
An admirer of fine football, from his seat in the stands he would applaud the star turns of the many world-class talents that passed before him over the years, accompanying each goal, each victory, each trophy with that warm smile of his.
His influence and hard work behind the scenes was one of the reasons behind Juventus' rise to become one of the world's greatest clubs.
Today, 94 years on from his birth, there are few words that can do justice to such an inspirational figure. All we can do is express our eternal gratitude for a man who helped give Juventus the one thing that will forever set us apart: our winning mentality.
