Today marks the joint birthday of Bianconeri legends David Trezeguet and Didier Deschamps.
World Cup winner Trezeguet, who turns 36, enjoyed a richly successful 11-year spell in Turin, with his prolific partnership with Alessandro Del Piero striking fear into the hearts of opposition defences.
The Frenchman’s 171 goals in the black and white stripes see him placed as the club’s fourth top goalscorer of all time. Trezeguet, affectionately known by the fans as ‘Trezegol’, concluded his Juventus career with an impressive trophy haul of four Scudetto titles, an Italian Super Cup and promotion back to Serie A as champions.
Deschamps, who joined Trezeguet in lifting the World Cup as Les Bleus’ captain in 1998, provided the driving force in midfield for three Scudetto titles, two Italian Super Cups, one Coppa Italia, one Champions League, one Intercontinental Cup and one European Super Cup between 1994 and 1999.
The current France coach, 45 today, also combined his on field success with a winning spell in the Juventus dugout, lifting the club back into Serie A at the first time of asking in 2006/07.
All associated with Juventus Football Club wish both David and Didier many happy returns.
