“My main attribute is being available to the group and to the boss, who believes that I can do a job in different positions across the park. While it’s not easy to do that at my age, I am happy to give my best and repay the trust he and the club have shown me.”
These words, spoken during an interview with Juventus TV a few weeks ago, sum up the essence of Stefano Sturaro. Passion, dedication, tactical flexibility, energy, grit and self-sacrifice.
The natural-born fighter turns 25 today and for over three years now he has always left everything out on the pitch in each match he has proudly worn the black and white stripes of Juventus.
Sturaro played a part in Wednesday’s hard-fought victory over Tottenham, in which he helped the Bianconeri defend their lead with the utmost bravery and belief.
While that result represents the perfect early birthday present, everyone at Juventus wishes Stefano the very best on his special day.
