Andrea Agnelli's revolution
The arrival of Andrea Agnelli brought widespread changes across all levels of the club. Work began by restructuring the Board of Directors. Giuseppe Marotta was recruited to oversee the sporting department and assume the role of CEO.After an initial season of transition, Juventus were fully prepared to re-establish themselves as a significant force in Serie A. In came Antonio Conte, returning to lead his beloved Bianconeri after enjoying a hugely successful thirteen-year stint as a player. He began his tenure by bolstering the squad with several important summer signings including: Lichtsteiner, Vucinic, Vidal and, above all, Andrea Pirlo. Despite the impressive recruitment policy, defending champions Milan were still regarded as favourites to reclaim the Scudetto. But something had changed and Juventus, boosted by their brand new 41,000 all-seater stadium, appeared to represent genuine challengers to the Rossoneri’s crown.
