Nine winners of the ‘Juventus For Talent’ competition have been granted the once in a lifetime experience of training alongside Bianconeri academy youngsters at the club’s state of the art training complex in Vinovo.
Launched on www.fbplayer.com between 11 April and 15 May, the competition asked budding talents aged from 13 to 18 to upload videos of their performances and the public to vote for their favourites.
Those with the highest number of votes were subsequently assessed by a panel of Bianconeri judges, who then whittled the list down to the winning nine.
The first to slip on the official Juventus training kit and put his skills to the test was 14-year-old Daniele Sozzo, who trained with Claudio Gabetta’s Giovanissimi Nazionali, under the watchful eyes of academy director Gianluca Pessotto, on Tuesday 7 October.
Two days later, on Thursday 9 October, Alessandro Ferraro, Cristian Vitalino, Riccardo Serrentino and Luca Quaranta worked alongside Felice Tufano’s Allievi Nazionali.
Elsewhere at Juventus Center, Edoardo Biemmi, Daniele Pollino and Francesco Ferrentino Venditti were put through their paces by World Cup winning Primavera coach Fabio Grosso.
