Juventus Pre-Season 2012 Kicks Off in Châtillon/St.Vincent

Our boys are back in action! PRE-SEASON action that is, which by Antonio Conte standards, means a lot and a LOT of running! :)

Still orphaned from their Euro 2012 contingent (Buffon, Chiellini, Barzagli, Bonucci, Marchisio, Pirlo, Giaccherini, and Giovinco – all enjoying extended vacation-time) as well as Mauricio Isla (who stayed back in Turin to follow a personalized training regimen to recuperate from his knee injury), the Juventus FC roster arrived at Châtillon / St.Vincent two days ago, a small village in Aosta Valley region of Italy which will host Juve’s pre-season training this year and the following two years to come.

Antonio Conte (who was busy in Rome today giving testimony for the Calcioscommesse scandal) brought 28 players along in Valle d’Aosta, including 10 elements from Juve’s Youth Sector (several of which Adam has profiled here on JuventiKnows).

The list includes (Youth Sector players in italics with age in brackets):

Goalkeepers Defenders Midfielders Forwards
Leali Cáceres Asamoah Boakye
Storari De Ceglie Marrone Matri
Branescu (18) Lichtsteiner Padoin Quagliarella
Citti (17) Lúcio (from Jul 14) Pepe Vucinic
Masi Vidal Padovan (18)
Ziegler Gab.Appelt (19)
Garcia Tena (17) Bouy (19)
Magnússon (19) Schiavone (19)
Rugani (18)
