Juventus Sign 32-Year Old And Place Him In Under 23 Squad

Juventus Sign 32-Year Old And Place Him In Under 23 Squad

32-year old Andrea Brighenti is anything but a signing for the future at Juventus, yet the new arrival is to play with the club's Under 23 side in Serie C.

The Bianconeri's secondary side have signed the striker from Serie B outfit Monza, beating off interest from Palermo and Como.

The vast majority of his teammates will be nine years younger than him at the very minimum so there is a bit of "How do you do fellow kids?" about it - but the Under 23 team are allowed a select few over-age players so it is all legitimate.

They already have two 30-year-olds in goalkeeper Timothy Nocci and captain Raffaele Alcibiade in their squad, as well as Stefano Gori and Dario del Fabro, aged 24 and 25 respectively.

Andrea Pirlo Excites Juventus Fans With Near-Perfect Score In Coaching Qualification

Turning out for the likes of Sambonifacese, Renate and Cremonese, Brighenti has an impressive 138 goals in 403 games across his career and notched six times as Monza achieved promotion to the second tier of Italian football last season.

Juventus' B team, who won the Coppa Italia C last term when they beat Termana in the final, have had some some swift changes within the coaching set-up in recent times.

A mere nine days after being appointed Under 23 boss, the legendary Andrea Pirlo was handed the first-team job at Juventus following the dismissal of Maurizio Sarri.

It means Lamberto Zauli, previously in charge of the Under 19's, has been promoted to the manager of the Under 23's.
