Andrea Agnelli has enjoyed a brilliant and trophy-laden rein as chairman of Juventus since his appointment in 2010.
The Old Lady have dominated the Italian League, despite never quite getting their hands on a Champions League trophy in that time.
Chairman nowadays are often criticised for having a lack of ambition and generally made out to be terrible, overly-rich individuals. Though Agnelli might be the latter, but no one can claim that he has no ambition when it comes to Juve.
Check out what he said five years ago about the one and only Cristiano Ronaldo . It'll take this topping, this.
"We need to be patient, in 5 years time we will be able to sign players like Ronaldo."
And five years later, here we are: Ronaldo is signed and sealed and set for a period of time at the Italian giants.

He has signed a four-year contract with the Turin club, in a move that will put many eyes on the Serie A next season and beyond.
Ronaldo has left behind a superb legacy at Real. He's their record top goal-scorer and arguably the greatest player of a club that's arguably the greatest and most prestigious of all time.
But Ronaldo feels as though his career is calling elsewhere.
