2. Gianluigi Buffon [2001-2018]
Buffon is characterized by his leadership on the pitch, as well as his cat-like reflexes, and excellent positioning, which has led him to be widely regarded as one of the greatest goalkeepers of all-time. It is an understandable title when you consider that he has been named the Serie A Goalkeeper of the Year a record 12 times, and the World‘s Best Goalkeeper of the past 25 years, by the IFFHS.
In addition to his on-field performances, Buffon is one of the few players that stayed at Juventus after the Caliciopoli scandal in 2006, where the club was relegated to Serie B. This in itself cemented him as a legend but has also been one of the best keepers ever certainly merits his inclusion in the list.
Since joining Juventus in 2001, Gigi won ten Serie A titles with his club. So far he has played over 650 matches for the club and is second in our list of greatest Juventus players ever.
1. Alessandro Del Piero [1993-2012]
For almost 20 years, Alessandro Del Piero was at the heart of Juventus. The man from Conegliano, just outside of Treviso near Venice, is one of the most iconic players of his generation and came to symbolize Italian football for many fans around the world.
Del Piero was a technically gifted and creative supporting forward. He is widely regarded by players, pundits, and managers as one of the greatest players of his generation. He was also one of the best Italian players of all time, winning the Serie A Italian Footballer of the Year award in 1998 and 2008.
He’s played more games and scored more goals than any other Bianconero, and he’s always done it in a classy way. Along with Buffon, he chose to go to Serie B in 2006 when he could have saved himself the ignominy and left for a new challenge elsewhere.
He was the focal point of a great side that won six league titles (eight before Calciopoli) and the Champions League in 1996. They finished runners-up in that competition three times, too.
