There’ll be no birthday better gift for Daniele Rugani today than a starting place in Massimiliano Allegri’s side for this evening’s friendly with Lechia Gdansk at the PGE Arena and the Tuscan confirmed as much in his meeting with the press this morning.
Happy Birthday, Daniele!
It is not the first time that the youngster has appeared for the Bianconeri in a birthday friendly, as he came off the bench on 28 July 2012 against Hertha Berlin on a date that marked the German club’s 120th anniversary.
Three years later however, after two breakthrough campaigns for Empoli where he sealed promotion to Serie A on his way to winning the Young Player of the Season award, Daniele features this time as a permanent fixture of the Juventus squad.
On his special day, everyone at Juventus Football Club would like to wish Daniele a very happy birthday and the best of luck for the start of his new Bianconero adventure.
