Italian giants Juventus have always been a club steeped in deep traditional values and have promoted a family atmosphere among their players for ages. The ‘Old Lady’ as they are so fondly called has now assembled one of the most feared units in world football, but the old values still remain at the core of the club. They have some of the biggest names in world football at their disposal like Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic, Miralem Pjanic, Sami Khedira, Douglas Costa and the aforementioned Cristiano Ronaldo. Yet they have managed to cultivate a real family atmosphere among their players.
The bonhomie amongst the players was clearly visible as they dressed up at their best in order to attend the club’s annual Christmas dinner before the players take off for a mini-vacation during the winter break.
Here are a few pictures of the players and how they dressed up for the gala.
Arguably the biggest signing in the history of the club, Portuguese superstar forward Cristiano Ronaldo has had a stunning start to life at the club. Ronaldo looked dapper in a grey suit. His girlfriend Georgina too kept things sassy in a shining black jacket along with red pants. Cristiano Jr., on the other hand, was at his casual best.
The crown jewel of Juventus, the Argentinian playmaker also looked at his very best as he dressed up for the dinner party. He decided to go for a black tuxedo on a white shirt with a suit and black pants. He had the company of his Oriana Sabatini who went for the all-black look.
Sami Khedira, Mario Mandzukic and Emre Can
Three of the most underrated performers plying their trade for Juventus, Sami Khedira, Emre Can and Mario Mandzukic also struck a pose together for the gala event. Khedira perfectly blended formal and casual together rocking a blue suit with a white turtleneck shirt inside. His compatriot Emre Can too matched his look albeit in a different colour. He wore a black suit with a turtleneck shirt inside. His choice of going for sneakers was particularly bold.
World Cup finalist Mario Mandzukic, on the other hand, kept things as classy as possible going for a grey suit with a black shirt.
