A popular figure in the dressing room - famous for his wit and sunny disposition - but also highly regarded on the field itself, Simone Pepe’s personal and professional qualities make him a vital member of Antonio Conte’s team.
On the pitch, he is extraordinarily versatile, having featured as a striker, winger, central midfielder and even in both full-back positions. When added to his tactical intelligence and sheer determination, it is clear to see why he has won the approval of every manager he’s worked with.
Born and bred in Rome, Simone travelled all over the country ahead of his move to Juve, with spells in Lecco, Teramo, Palermo, Piacenza, Cagliari before finding a consistent role in Udine.
104 appearances and 14 goals at the Stadio Friuli earned him a place in Marcello Lippi’s 2010 World Cup squad. Shortly before departing for South Africa, Pepe confirmed his move to the Bianconeri, tasting Scudetto success two seasons later.
He has recently emerged from a nightmare injury layoff that has lasted the best part of a year, and is now ready to continue to push Juve towards more trophy successes.
