Bianconeri hero and fan favourite David Trezeguet has returned to Juventus in a full-time capacity, becoming president of the club’s Juventus Legends project.
A few months ago, rumours began to spread of the striker’s impending retirement, and today he can confirm that he has hung up his goalscoring boots to return to his spiritual home of Juventus.
The work he has already done as a club ambassador has underlined the warmth and affection felt towards him by fans across the globe, a fitting tribute to the goalscoring exploits he treated legions of Bianconeri supporters to during 10 glorious seasons with the club.
Following 171 goals in 320 appearances, David departed for new challenges in Spain, UAE and Argentina, before bringing down the curtain on his career with a spell at Pune City.
And after returning to receive the adulation of his adoring faithful before last year’s clash with Roma at Juventus Stadium, he will now be back wearing the black and white stripes again, lining up alongside the fellow greats who have contributed to the club’s glorious history.
The first opportunity to see him in action comes on 4 May 2015, when the Juventus Legends travel to face their Kyushu counterparts at Tosu’s Best Amenity Stadium in Japan. It will mark a return to familiar territory for Trezeguet, who inaugurated Fukuoka’s Juventus Lounge in January.
