Pessotto: il professore
Olivera: el pollo
Zalayeta: Il panterone, the big panther


I think, but I'm not 100% sure:

Montero: la pigna
Trezeguet, I heard fans calling him also "le roi david"
Thuram, il filosofo, the philosopher

Players of the “quinquennio” (1930-35). Juve won 5 scudettos in a row at the time ;)

Giampiero Combi (Goalkeeper): Fusetta, “lightning” in piemontese dialect. It’s because he was fast as a lightning.

Virginio Rosetta: Viri. It’s because of his name.

Umberto Caligaris: Caliga. It’s because of his surname.

Felice Placido Borel: Farfallino, little butterfly. It’s because of his perfect and elegant dribblings.

Renato Cesarini (also trainer in the Sivori-era): Cè. Because of his surname.

Luisito Monti: Centromediano che cammina, Central midfielder that walks. Many said that he was not that fast ;) Also called “Doble Ancho” because of his large shulders.

Federico Munerati: Ricciolo, curl. Because of his hair. Also called Mune, abbreviation of his surname.

Raimondo Orsi: Mumo.

Guglielmo Gabetto: Il barone, the baron. Because of his elegance.

Giovanni Ferrari: Gioanin. “Giovanni” in the dialect of Milan. (btw, he, along with Furino, owns the record of scudettos, 8)
