Juventus is one of the strongest clubs in the history of Italian football. They have won numerous prestigious national as well as international titles. The club is also known as the place where dozens, even hundreds of great footballers were born. Among all the players of Juventus, who should be given the title as the best of all time?
In this article, I'd like to present 15 names, ranging from goalkeepers to strikers who established reputations as Juventus' legend. All of them contributed important roles in the past victory of Juventus and have achieved impressive individual records as football players.

15. David Trezeguet

David Trezeguet is a deadly target-man from France who became the main source of goal for this club for ten years, from 2000 to 2010. From 300 appearances, Trezeguet scored 171 goals in total. This record makes Trezegol holds the record as the most scoring foreign players in Juventus.

14. Gianluigi Buffon

Until now, Buffon is a Juventus player who has the sixth most appearances for the club of all time. The rankings are still very likely continue to rise because Buffon is still actively playing as a goalkeeper of La Vecchia Signora. Since joining Juventus in 2001, Gigi has presented four Serie A titles for his club. Throughout his career, he also eight times won the titles as the Best Goalkeeper in Serie A.

13. Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte is a player who was very loyal to Juventus. After 13 years of playing for Juventus, he was appointed as the club's coach. Conte's style of play is very different from most of the Juventus players in this list. He is an example of hardworking midfielder who did not mind playing harsh to secure his team's defense. His charismatic figure also made Conte was appointed as a captain of the team when Alessandro Del Piero was absent because of injury.

12. Pavel Nedved

Juventus was lucky to have players like Nedved. The Czech Republic player was transferred from Lazio in 2001, and he had a vital role in helping the Old Lady dominated Italian football during that period of time. Nedved is a versatile midfielder. He can be played as a winger, placed behind the striker, or positioned as a defensive midfielder. He also quite often scored with his trademark cannonball from outside of penalty box.

11. John Charles

There are not many players from the United Kingdom who can achieve great success in the Italian Football League. John Charles is one of the few examples of such players. Although only played five seasons for Juventus, the striker who can also play as a winger has a very important role. He was very fast, powerful, and productive in scoring goals. Throughout his career, John Charles scored 109 goals from 186 appearances and he helped his team win three Serie A titles.

10. Antonio Cabrini

Played for 13 seasons for Juventus, Scirea is often referred as the best Italian defenders of all time. This wingback is not only strong in defense, but also often helped the offense by creating deadly cross passes from the left side of the pitch. Not only in Juventus, Cabrini was also an important figure for the Italian national team. After his retirement, Cabrini coached many teams, and this time he is the architect of the Italian women's football team.

6. Zinedine Zidane

I did not put Zidane in a higher ranking because a lot of people consider he had more successful career at Real Madrid than at Juventus. However, the retired French midfielder still had an important role in the history of La Vecchia Signora. He became an irreplaceable figure in the Juventus throughout the late 90s to early 2000s, before eventually being transferred to Real Madrid. In total, Zidane played for Juventus for 212 times and scored 31 goals.

Along with John Charles and Giampiero Boniperti, Sivori formed a deadly trident of Juventus in the period of 1950 to 1960.
