Elegant with the ball at his feet, a leader in the dressing room, and a natural-born winner on the pitch. It's no surprise that Claudio Marchisio has enjoyed so much success at his boyhood club with all the key attributes of a Juventus player in his possession.
After having graduated from Juventus' youth sector, this year marks Marchisio's 11th full season at the club. His role has changed over the years at Juve, initially starting out in more advanced positions as a youngster, Marchisio has transformed his game into that of a more deep-lying midfield role, keeping the team ticking with his precise passing and perfect positional sense.
Having become a #LE6END last year, undoubtedly Claudio will be aiming for even more silverware with the team that he holds dear to his heart this season.
Everyone at Juventus Football Club wishes Claudio many happy returns on his special day and many more successes to come over the course of the current campaign.
Happy Birthday, Claudio!
