Did you Know?

Juventus just came up short in Serie A for the second year in a row. Unlike in 2000, it did not have matters in its own hands prior to the final game of the season, and even though Juventus fended off Atalanta 2–1 at home, Roma beat Parma 3–1, which meant the title landed with a Roman club for the second year running. The determining moment of the title race had been a showdown between Juventus and Roma at the Stadio delle Alpi with six games to go, and the Bianconeri closing down on the Romans who had suffered a recent dip in their form. In front of their crowd, Juventus began the brightest. Two goals in quick succession by Alessandro Del Piero and Zinedine Zidane gave them a lead they held on to until the 79th minute, when Edwin van der Sar took center stage. The Dutch goalkeeper fumbled a long-range effort from Roma’s Japanese midfielder Hidetoshi Nakata, enabling the latter to score a fortunate goal. In added time, Vincenzo Montella equalized for the Roman club, thus denying Juventus a vital victory.La Vecchia Signora did win all five of its remaining games after that, but in the meantime, Roma did enough to make sure they didn’t lose the top spot of the table, thus winning their first scudetto since 1983. The success was celebrated wildly in the streets of the Italian capital, and the fact that Roma had beaten bitter rivals Juventus to the title made the supporters even happier.

In the Champions League 2000/2001, Juventus was a major disappointment, getting knocked out in the first group stage of the tournament. The team was eliminated in the group stage of the Champions League, after Zidane was banned for head-butting Hamburger SV player Jochen Kientz.It was the first time in the club’s history that it had been knocked so early in the competition. This performance put Carlo Ancelotti’s position at the helm under even more threat. Ancelotti had already been associated in the previous season with the club’s worst run in any European competition since the 1987–88 season. As a man who had been associated with Juve’s rivals Milan, Roma and Parma for most of his footballing career, he had never been a popular choice with the fans, with frequent doubts being raised about his lack of concern for the club’s declining fortunes. In this season Zinedine Zidane was named Serie A Foreign Footballer of the Year for the second time.

Iuliano Mark

Did you Know?

After greatly impressing in his second spell with Salernitana, Iuliano caught the eye of several major scouts, most notably those of Serie A giants Juventus F.C.. In July 1996, Iuliano transferred to the Torino based outfit, and was a big hit right from the start, as Juve continued their Serie A and European dominance. He made his Serie A début on 15 September 1996, 2–1 win over Cagliari Calcio. In his first season with Juventus he played in 21 league games scoring a single goal. Iuliano is also known for the episode involving Ronaldo where Inter claimed a penalty. Up to this day, newspapers cite this episode and in a recent interview to the newspaper “Il Tirreno” the referee, Piero Ceccarini, clarified, “From the images it is clear that Ronaldo runs into Iuliano, not vice versa: as a matter of fact, the Juventus player falls backwards, resulting from the impact of Ronaldo running into him. I was on the pitch, a few meters away. The intention of the defender was to stop the attacker’s progression, but the attacker moved the ball and the defender did not follow it. Iuliano was stationary at the moment of contact, there are no doubts about this. I told Pagliuca (Inter’s goalkeeper) that in basketball this would be an offensive foul. Perhaps I ought to have whistled a foul in favour of Juventus”. Iuliano would become an eventual starter for the club the following season, but was hampered by injuries in the 1999–2000 season, limiting him to just 20 appearances. Juventus had what was considered as the best defence in the world at this time, and teams strongly regretted ever going down a goal to the club, as they knew how hard it would be to score one back for themselves. Iuliano formed impressive defensive partnerships with the likes of Ciro Ferrara, Moreno Torricelli, Paolo Montero, Gianluca Pessotto, Lilian Thuram, Alessandro Birindelli, Igor Tudor, Gianluca Zambrotta, Nicola Legrottaglie, and Fabio Cannavaro during his 10-year tenure with the club. After the 2004–2005 Serie A triumph, veteran teammates Paolo Montero and Ciro Ferrara called it quits on their Juventus career (this title was later revoked following Juventus’s involvement in the 2006 Calciopoli scandal). The Uruguayan opted to return to his homeland, while Iuliano remained, but in January 2005, he left for La Liga side RCD Mallorca on free transfer after having not played regularly in the first portion season. Iuliano made well over 200 total appearances for i bianconeri, scoring nearly 15 goals.  During his time at Juventus, Iuliano won 4 Serie A titles, an Intercontinental Cup, an UEFA Supercup and three Italian Supercups, also reaching three UEFA Champions League finals (in 1997, 1998, and 2003) and two Coppa Italia finals (in 2002 and 2004).

Things to Know:

This is the first time ever that official team supplier’s brand was not always visible on team’s shirt.  In fact the official supplier of the season was Lotto. But Lotto’s brand and logos were only visible on friendly games shirts. During the Serie A games and Champions League the usual supplier’s logos on chest and on sleeves were not the Lotto’s ones but CiaoWeb  logos. CiaoWeb was an Italian web company owned by Fiat and Ifil. So basically the team’s shirts for Serie A and Champions League had a double regular sponsors on the shirt.

Fonseca Daniel


Did you Know?

Juventus signed Fonseca in 1997, but he was once again played out of position on the left wing, as he had been at Cagliari and AS Roma. His goalscoring record in Serie A was very good considering he was not always a first choice player with Roma]] and Juventus. Fonseca was always regarded as a “super sub”, and scored several important goals coming off the bench. During his time with the Turin club, he won one Serie A title, a Champions League runner-up medal and the Supercoppa Italiana.

Did you Know?

This shirt is a prototype shirt never used by the team. It merges together several details of the 2000-2001 shirt and some of the further 2001-2002 model. The shirt’s fabric is the 2000-2001’s fabric, while the Lotto’s logo on chest is the embroidered one from 2001-2002. The two red Lotto’s logos on sleeves are perhaps the velvet made typical details of the next season’s shirt. Name set and number on the back are also from the 2001-2002 season with white number in a black square and a black name in a white strip while 2000-2001 regular shirts have both in white colour in to a black square.
