Promoted to Italy's top flight in 1996, Udinese have become a regular fixture in Serie A. Sharing Juventus' black and white stripes, the Friulian outfit has cultivated a reputation of prudent and responsible management and in recent times as a club based on the sourcing and development of top young talent.
Having excelled in finishing in the top five three seasons in a row between 2010/11 and 2012/2013, the Zebrette continue to perform admirably in the country's top division. The last two seasons have been tougher for the northeastern side but in Antonio Di Natale they still have one of Europe's most prolific marksmen.
This will be the diminutive striker's 11th season at Udinese as he looks to climb the Serie A all-time scorers table where he currently sits in sixth place.
