Juventus stole the show at tonight’s ‘Gran Galà del Calcio’ ceremony in Milan, winning the awards for Best Club and Best Manager for the 2015/16 season, as well as having seven members of the squad named in the team of the year.
The Bianconeri’s sensational run to a history-making fifth successive Scudetto title saw Gianluigi Buffon, Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Miralem Pjanic, Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain all included in Serie A’s best XI.
For defender Bonucci there was the added recognition of being voted Best Player over the course of the previous campaign.
Picking up the Best Club award on behalf of Juventus, CEO Giuseppe Marotta declared: “This is a glorious and victorious club. Winning is in Juventus’ DNA and we’re always looking to continue this tradition.”
