Here is a short background on Juventus

Juventus is the most successful club in Italian football and international,they have won fifty six tittles on the international and national competitions and this is more than any other Italian club. Juventus have recorded 30 league titles,9 Italian Cups, Six National Super Cups, and eleven tittles on European competitions.The club ranks number 4 in Europe and 8th in the World in terms of the most trophies won by a football club.They are also the first team to have won all three major tournaments organised by the Union of European Football Associations.

Juventus owes its success to quality players that played for the club through out the years,one very influential player being Michel Platini who was the first player to be awarded the European Footballer of the Year tittle three times in a row from 1983 to 1985.He is the same player who scored the winning goal in the 1985 European Cup final against Liverpool making Juventus the first team to have won three major European Competitions.

The club did not do well however towards the late 80’s as they had major competitors such as Napoli,Inter and AC Milan.Marcelo Lippi was hired as manager in the start of the 1994 to 1995 league campaign.His first season was impressive as he lead the team to their first Serie A tittle since the mid 80’s.This Juventus squad had a bunch of quality players such as Roberto Baggio,Gianluca Vialli and Alessandro Del Piero to mention a few.

Marcelo Lippi took the club to the Champions League tittle the following year where they beat Ajax in the final on penalties after a 1-1 draw.The club continued with the good spell as the signed quality players such as Zinedane Zidane, Filippo Inzaghi and Edgar Davids,this move resulted to the club winning the Serie A twice, the UEFA Super Cup and the 1996 Intercontinental Cup.They won more tittles in the upcoming seasons but failed to continue with the consistency after coach Lippi was appointed as Italy head coach.
