Martin Caceres re-joined the Bianconeri for his third spell in Turin in the January 2019 transfer window on-loan from Lazio, the side in which he made his first Juventus debut against in 2009, marking the occasion with a goal in the process.
Known for his passionate displays, Caceres soon became a fans’ favourite during his time at the club, and fans were overjoyed when the defender returned for a second time in January 2012, initially on-loan from Sevilla, before the move became permanent at the end of the season.
After departing at the end of 2015/16, Caceres eventually moved on to Southampton, prior to returning to Italy in 2017 to turn out for Hellas Verona, and then Lazio.
The versatile Uruguayan, who can operate anywhere across defence, began his career in his homeland with Defensor Sporting. Following a move to Villarreal, his performances on-loan at Recreativo attracted the attentions of European giants Barcelona, who swooped to bring the talented youngster to the Nou Camp, before he then wound up at Sevilla.
Caceres has made over 100 appearances across three spells with Juventus and continues to be an important part of the Bianconeri defence.
On the international scene, Caceres was part of the Uruguay squad that reached the World Cup semi-finals in 2010, while also featuring in La Celeste’s victorious Copa America run a year later. He was a prominent fixture too in his side’s run at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil, and was part of the squad in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
