• Spent the next 13 seasons at Juve, later describing the famous black-and-white shirt as his "second skin". Won five Scudettos, the UEFA Champions League in 1995/96 and the UEFA Cup in 1992/93 in addition to triumphs in the UEFA Super Cup, Italian Cup and a European/South American Cup, wearing the captain's armband from 1996.

• Wasted no time in revamping the squad and enjoyed a debut season to remember as the Bianconeri claimed the Scudetto without losing a single game, suffering their sole defeat of the season against SSC Napoli in the Coppa Italia final. After signing a new contract until 2015, he duly guided Juventus to a second successive title in 2013.
