A profile of Juventus Football team
With the World cup about to begin in Brazil, I feel that most of the game's fame is accredited to the super teams. Such teams have been known to contain the most talented players and always thrill their fans. However, we tend to forget that that talent portrayed by a certain player was a nurtured either in a slum, a getto, a sub hurb or arich location, before luck came by their way. but mostly, most players come from the lowly preferred backgrounds. This is to say that one can find even better soccer players than we have in our National Football Teams. So why am I writing this? Definitely, I am trying to drive the point that even the smaller soccer teams such as juventus,deserve to be praised for making heroes........The Juventus football club is among the oldest soccer clubs in Italy. In fact, it is the third oldest Italian club. It was founded in 1897 by a group of students from Turin for sporting purposes. When the team started participating in football tournaments, its first manager was Enrico Cafari and its original team uniforms were black and pink. However, as time progressed, they changed the color of their play kits into black and white stripes. This change in team uniform was a tribute to the county of Notts. In 1923, Eduardo Agnelli attained the ownership of the club (Elyland and Islands 11). Under the ownership of Eduardo, the Juventus Football club won a series of games and trophies. The club had won twenty-nine Italian league titles, nine Italian Cups, eleven inter-confederation and confederation titles and six national super cup titles. This club has the largest fan base in Italy. Its fan base is also among the largest in the world of football. Its current manager is Antonio Conte, who was appointed in the year 2011.
