      Born decades apart on 12 August, defensive stalwarts Francesco Morini and Mark Iuliano turn 70 and 41 respectively today

      Francesco Morini and Mark Iuliano, two prominent figures in the history of Bianconeri rearguards, today celebrate their 70th and 41st birthdays respectively.

      Over the course of 10 years in the famous black and white jersey, Morini appeared 372 times, winning five Scudetto titles, a Coppa Italia as well as the UEFA Cup in 1977.

      Famed for his tenacity and expert ability to rob the ball off opposition strikers, the Tuscan brought his playing career to an end in 1980 before going on to serve as director of football at Juventus.    

      Iuliano, on the other hand, played for the Bianconeri from 1996 to 2005, making 277 appearances, scoring seven goals and winning nine trophies.

      The Cosenza-born defender’s first winners’ medal came in the 1997 Intercontinental Cup final where his solitary strike ensured the Old Lady overcame River Plate in Tokyo. He also returned to Turin to take part in the UNESCO Cup in June of this year.

      All associated with Juventus wish both Morini and Iuliano many happy returns on their special days.
