On 28 July 1927 in Lugo di Romagna, a future postwar Juventus hero was born. His name, Ermes Muccinelli. Arriving from Biellese in 1945 as an 18-year-old, the flying winger would go on to represent Juventus 241 times, netting 69 strikes, a formidable figure for a right-sided forward.
A fine dribbler, possessing a gilded first touch and excellent movement off the ball, Ermes is fondly remembered by all Juventini of a certain age for his 11 successful seasons in the famous black and white jersey.
Combative and tenacious for a man of his size, Muccinelli partnered Giampiero Boniperti and John Hansen in an attacking trio that yielded two league titles in 1949/50 and 1951/52.
