Ciro Ferrara
Date of birth: 11 February 1967
National team: Italy
Clubs: SSC Napoli, Juventus FC

An inspiration to everyone at Juventus, Ferrara remains one of Italy's most experienced defenders, despite often being deployed as a substitute as he reaches the end of an illustrious career, which has seen the Naples-born defender win every honour in club football. Born in 1967, he won 49 caps for Italy in an international career spanning 13 years - from a debut against Argentina in 1987 to UEFA EURO 2000™, where he claimed a silver medal. After making his Napoli debut against, ironically, Juventus in May 1985, Ferrara spent nine seasons at the San Paolo stadium. In a side spearheaded by the Argentinian Diego Maradona, he was part of Napoli's league title-winning sides of 1987 and 1990, but the highlight of his career there was a goal in the 1989 UEFA Cup final victory against VfB Stuttgart, ahead of a switch to the Bianconeri in 1994.

It was in Turin that the silverware flowed with Juventus claiming the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, European/South American Cup, and five Scudettos to date in his time at the club. Ferrara's crowning glory came when Juventus defeated defending champions AFC Ajax on penalties in the 1995/96 Champions League final. After playing 30 Serie A matches in 2001/02, Ferrara followed it up with another 25 as Juve claimed back-to-back titles. He scored once in 12 Champions League appearances but was powerless to prevent AC Milan winning the competition on penalties at Old Trafford following a 0-0 draw.

It'll be really sad the day he'll retires and i think this year is his last season :down:
Why is it sad? I think it will be a great day! As long as he holds a management position in the club.

All the best for Ferrara, hopefully he will continue playing next season.

It's incredible that he's still this good at such an high age. His vision must be superb.
