      Boyhood Bianconero and midfield maestro, Claudio Marchisio celebrates his 31st birthday

      Classy and composed with the ball at his feet, a leader in the dressing room, a natural-born winner on the pitch. In many ways Claudio Marchisio was always destined to enjoy an exceptional career in the colours of his beloved boyhood club.

      This is Marchisio’s 10th full season in Juventus’ first team after emerging as the cream of the crop from the club’s youth sector and he’s gone on to stamp his mark on many a midfield battle ever since.

      Starting off in more attack-minded positions as a youngster, the Turin-born talent would never be far away from the scoresheet or, at the very least, setting up a team-mate to do the honours.

      Nowadays, the ‘Little Prince’ occupies a more deep-lying midfield role and does so with real aplomb, forming the principal pivot at the heart of the action, keeping the team ticking with his precise passing and perfect positional sense.

      This may mean less headline making, but for a true team player such as Marchisio, the only thing that matters is winning and, after over a decade of doing just that, his determination to lift more silverware is showing no signs of stopping.

      Everyone at Juventus wishes Claudio many happy returns on his special day and more successes to come over the course of the campaign.
