Former Juventus striker (1946-1961), former Italian international (38 caps and 8 goals between 1948 and 1960) and old lady’s president from 1971 to 1990, Giampiero Bonberti, honorary president of Juventus, has died at the age of 92. On the ground he won five Italian Championships and two Italian Cups, and it was in 1982 that he brought on Michel Platini to replace the aging Irishman Liam Brady.
This pure Piedmontese has always been the trusted man to the heads of the club, the Agnelli family. And a benchmark for all Juventus, after 444 Serie A matches (Juventus scored) and 181 official goals (only Del Piero was better) for the old lady.
Serie A top scorer in 1947-1948
Boniperti arrived in 1946. For fifteen years, the head of the team, the first striker (the top scorer of the Italian league in 1947-48 with 27 goals) and then nine and a half, will be the perfect starting platform for the Charles duo. Sephori. Playmaker, playmaker, technically skilled and champion of style on the court, he can also harden his demeanor and go coals.
After 1961, Giampiero became club director and was appointed president ten years later. Within two decades, he established a fearsome Juventus, confident in titles. Abandoned in 1990, Boniperti returned a year later and served as Managing Director until 1994, when Moggi and Giroud arrived … he remained a moral authority for so long that the Agnelli family did not fail to consult.
