Diego Fever!

If a good day can be seen from the morning, that between Juventus and Diego is a love destined to last long and leave its mark. The Brazilian wore black and white for the first time during the summer training camp in Pinzolo and it was immediately Diego-mania.

The Juventus supporters could not have welcomed him in a better way. From Vinovo to Trentino: the affection for the Brazilian could be seen everywhere. The player, while awaiting to reciprocate on the field, did it through words. From the square in Pinzolo, where he was officially presented to the public and through Juventus Member, Diego sent his personal message.

"As from today my adventure with Juventus begins – he told the Members -, it is the coming true of a dream which I have had for some time, that is since my name was mentioned in connection with this glorious club. During this time I had the opportunity to get informed, I read the history of the club and of its many victories but most of all I got to know about the warmth of you our supporters".

This warmth was more then evident during the evening held at Pinzolo. On stage together with Diego were general manager Jean-Claude Blanc and sports director Alessio Secco the event was aired live on Sky Sport (during the programme Calciomercato presented by Alessandro Bonan) and on Juventus Channel. Most of all however the new signing was together with many fans who did not want to miss out on the baptism in black and white of Diego. Many of these wore the number 28 which the Brazilian will be wearing at the beginning of his new adventure.
