      Hurrà Juventus, in 2015, got to know Marco Storari even better

      One of the historical merits of Hurrà Juventus was how it dove deep into the lifes of each of the Bianconeri's footballers, gathering and enhancing the curiosity of the fan, with facts and insights about their idols. Therefore, since the 1960s, one of the pleasures Hurrà Juventus brought to the households of the fans was how it discovered the private lives of the players, their relationships, their hobbies and a whole lot more. It investigated the connection between the field and the outside, as well as enjoying a relaxed chat, away from the competitive events that usually took place.

      In April 2015, Marco Storari featured in an interview that showcased the Juventus goalkeeper in a new light. It turns out, despite the 12 different teams he played for in his career, there is family stability at the base of his career through his wife and two children. 

      FIVE YEARS IN BIANCONERO

      Storari arrived at Juventus in the summer of 2010. His career was at an important crossroad. With Sampdoria he had just won a spot in the Champions League qualifiers. It was through his series of truly exceptional performances that helped the Blucerchiato club obtain the exceptional results. Juve focused in on him, after Gigi Buffon sustained an injury during the 2010 World Cup in South African.

      Marco arrived in Turin knowing that he would be a starter for at least half of the season. Juve will be a personal experience of his greatest continuity, he he summarised the five years as follows: “I did not think about being on the bench in the future, but only those six months. Gigi returned and I agreed to remain on the bench for various reasons, especially because I felt part of a competitive group that was attracted to a winning project. It was the best decision."

      THE GOALKEEPER'S CALLING

      It was quite normal in the past for goalkeepers to share a similar story: they had chosen that role simply because they didn't play well in the other positions. In street football, this was the logic that put everyone in agreement; if you are not good with your feet, you are entrusted with your hands.

      This, however, was not the case with Marco, his calling came from other origins: “I was influenced by the fact that, as a child, I tried to emulate my father, who was an amateur goalkeeper. So when I played with him and my twin sister, who is a good footballer, I always put myself in goal. When I enrolled in a football school, I said I wanted to be a goalkeeper and I never changed."

      PENALTIES

      Storari's five years with the Bianconeri saw him win: four Scudetti, one Italian Cup (in which he featured in every game), and two Italian Super Cups. He was a goalkeeper with precise skills, above all; courage, responsiveness and personality. There is enough material to be more than satisfied, but Marco Storari still had one dream he didn't achieve: “The only thing I would change is to train myself on how to take penalties, because my dream is to score. I faced many, but never scored."
