      On this day in 1953, a champion on the pitch and in life, Gaetano Scirea, was born

      French Enlightenment era author Georges-Louis Leclerc wrote "The style is the man himself." A phrase that certainly describes the late Gaetano Scirea, a man who had few rivals in terms of elegance and class both on and off the pitch.

      Today would have been Scirea's 65th birthday for the man born in Cernusco sul Naviglio. "Gai" was an unmatched champion and an indespensable reference point..."a champion in everything he did" as said by Giampiero Poniperti. 

      His premature death on 3 September, 1989 leaves an emptiness in not only the world of Juventus but the world of football.
