Bianconeri frontman Fernando Llorente is today celebrating his 29th birthday.
Since arriving from Atletic Bilbao on a free transfer last summer, Llorente has formed a productive partnership with Carlos Tevez - Serie A’s joint most prolific at present on 24 goals- and captured the fans hearts with his dedication to the cause and determining contribution in the final third.
After netting a trademark header on his full Serie A debut against Hellas Verona at Juventus Stadium, the Pamplona-born frontman has gone on to score a further nine goals in Italy’s top-flight, including a memorable last-minute winner over Udinese on 1 December 2013.
The Spanish international is to spend his special day building up to the Bianconeri’s pivotal clash against Trabzonspor with his team-mates, in the hope that the ideal birthday present of last-16 qualification will arrive tomorrow evening.
All associated with Juventus Football Club wish Fernando many happy returns.
