For those supporters looking to follow their stars who are temporarily outside Turin, they need look no further than a brand new feature of Juventus.com, namely a section dedicated exclusively to the 56 Bianconeri out on loan at clubs ranging between Serie B (17), Lega Pro (14) a first (14) or second (6) division in Europe, or in Serie A (5).
The list includes players like Marcel Buchel, who yesterday put Empoli 2-0 up away to Fiorentina with a brilliant left-footed strike (the visitors would end up having to settle for a 2-2 draw) or Ouasim Bouy, who played an important role in PEC Zwolle’s 5-0 rout of Roda.
Bouy provided a perfect assist, a 50-metre cross-field ball to Stefan Nijland, whose goal capped off a significant victory for the Dutch outfit that has now risen to seventh place in the Eredivisie and a playoff berth for Europa League qualification.
Born in Amsterdam, the 22-year-old of Moroccan origin is a product of Ajax’s youth academy and can be deployed either in the centre or on the left side of midfield. After playing for the Primavera in Vinovo, he made his mark with Brescia, scoring a goal on his debut against Spezia as well as amassing five assists before a knee injury led to a lengthy spell on the sidelines.
After completing his road to recovery at Juventus Center, Bouy set off for Bundesliga-outfit Hamburg in January 2014, then featured more regularly with Panathinaikos, before making a return home to Holland by switching to Zwolle, with whom he scored the winning goal against Willem II at the start of October.
