      Michelangelo Rampulla celebrates his 53rd birthday. The goalkeeper enjoyed a trophy-laden decade with the Bianconeri

      Upon joining Juventus in the summer of 1992, Michelangelo Rampulla admitted he was unsure how long his time in Turin would last.

      Speaking to Hurrà in 2002, the goalkeeper, who served largely as back-up for Angelo Peruzzi, said: “I thought it would either be a fleeting experience or an adventure. Instead I ended up staying for ten seasons, covering also for Edwin Van der Sar, Gigi Buffon and Fabian Carini.”

      Prior to joining the Old Lady, the Sicilian shot-stopper enjoyed seven years with Cremonese, playing a key role in the club’s rise to Serie A. In his last season at the Lombard club, Rampulla even scored from a corner-kick away at Atalanta

      Moving to Juventus months later after that magical strike, he would embark on a trophy-laden ten years, before deciding to hang up his boots at the age of 40, having just scooped the 2002 Scudetto under Marcello Lippi.

      Over the course of his decade with the Bianconeri, Rampulla won four league titles, the Champions League, UEFA Cup, UEFA Super Cup, Intercontinental Cup, Coppa Italia and two Italian Super Cups.

      Everyone associated with Juventus Football Club wishes Michelangelo many happy returns on his special day.
