    The Juventus Legends take to the training fields to add the finishing touches to their preparations for Friday’s Luvfans friendly match in Shanghai

    There are certain sensations that never leave a professional footballer, even after he has hung up his boots, whether it be the thud of the studs upon the grass, opening the locker to find the kit laid out ready to don with pride or the laughs and jokes shared with team-mates just before entering the field of play.

    For the Juventus Legends, Thursday’s workout at Training Center Century Park brought back these familiar feelings, as they applied the finishing touches to Friday’s Luvfans friendly match in the same location where Massimiliano Allegri’s players prepared during the week leading up to last August’s Super Cup triumph over Lazio.

    While today’s session for Gianluca Pessotto’s outfit may not have been quite so intense as those of Allegri’s first-team, the Juventus Legends put on a more than entertaining show of skill and footballing savvy before a captive audience of local fans. Geed on by amiable mascot J, supporters cheered every one of the Legends’ goals while chanting all of the Bianconeri’s tunes in perfect Italian.

    Among the adoring crowd were Premium Members and a number of children from a Shanghai-based Soccer School, who received Junior Memberships and welcome packs straight from the hands of the Juventus Legends themselves.

    Attentions now shift to Friday evening, when several of the men who wrote their names indelibly into Bianconeri history take on a selection of local legends in the much-awaited friendly match organised by Luvfans Network Technology Co. Ltd., which kicks off at Hongkou Football Stadium at 19.30 local time.
