Monday, 4 December 2023, at OGR in Turin, saw the 2023 edition of the European Golden Boy awards ceremony take place, an awards evening established in 2003 by the Italian sports newspaper Tuttosport.
This year, Juventus were among the prize winners in three categories on the night.
First of all, our Football Director, Cristiano Giuntoli, was handed the "Greatest Challenge of the Year 2023", prize, before our Monza match-winner Federico Gatti received the special Targa Scirea.
Juventus were awarded for success not just on the field, but off it as well: Danilo Pinto, AKA DaniPitbull, Italian eSports champion last season with the Juventus Dsyre team, won the 2023 Italian Golden Boy Esports award.
Now on loan at Sassuolo, but still a Bianconera, Chiara Beccari was also awarded as Best Under-21 Italian Female Player of 2023.
COMMENTS FROM THE AWARD-WINNERS
"We do a job that is like a tunnel, in which every now and then you can see the light at the end; for this reason we must continue to work, with the aim of obtaining great satisfaction. I have only been at Juventus for a short time, there is an extraordinary working group that has done and is doing very well with our young players, and the fruits are starting to reap the benefits. We have a duty to maintain a balance between competitiveness and sustainability."
"The love of the fans is the most beautiful thing, I still don't believe it; but I believe that balance is always fundamental, because the Juventus shirt is heavy, in Italy and throughout the world, and it is one more reason to always give your best. My kiss on the coat of arms is because Juve has given me so much and changed my life. The championship? It's very exciting and balanced, there are many strong teams, we have gained a lot of awareness, but we have to keep our feet on the ground: we really want to play in the big matches, also in Europe, our main objective is to return to the Champions League. Today's prize? I know the Scirea family, I am very pleased to receive it, because I know that they have experienced a pain that you would never wish on anyone. Living at Juve, you feel the presence of a legend like Gaetano."
"I thank Juventus Dsyre, because together we are building a great project, with day-to-day work. I am a Juventus player, and I understand that representing Juventus is not easy, but for me it is above all a great honour."
Congratulations to all our winners!
