Return to success
The arrival of Andrea Agnelli brought widespread changes across all levels of the club. Work began by restructuring the Board of Directors. Giuseppe Marotta was recruited to oversee the sporting department and assume the role of CEO.
After an initial season of transition, Juventus were fully prepared to re-establish themselves as a significant force in Serie A. In came Antonio Conte, returning to lead his beloved Bianconeri after enjoying a hugely successful thirteen-year stint as a player. He began his tenure by bolstering the squad with several important summer signings including: Lichtsteiner, Vucinic, Vidal and, above all, Andrea Pirlo.
Despite the impressive recruitment policy, defending champions Milan were still regarded as favourites to reclaim the Scudetto. But something had changed and Juventus, boosted by their brand new 41,000 all-seater stadium, appeared to represent genuine challengers to the Rossoneri’s crown.
And then there was the action itself. Conte managed to instantly mould an aggressive but stylish team unit which guaranteed both attractive football and results. Juventus were an unstoppable force as they ended the league campaign unbeaten and lifted the Scudetto for the 30th time in the club’s history. This provided departing skipper Del Piero with the perfect send-off to his illustrious career in the black and white stripes.
