After having clarified who is Maurizio Arrivabene in this article:
I became aware of the need for defining who exactly is Federico Cherubini, so there you have it! A bunch of unusual facts never hurt anybody:
The 50 year old Italian born in Foligno (Italy) has been doing the dirty work for Juventus since 2012. From being appointed as the Juventus Academy Manager and working as the Juve Sports Coordinator to newly serving as Fabio Paratici’s successor. Everything mentioned counts, and we should recognise the time and determination Cherubini invested in his work for the black and white colours. Cherubini was Fabio’s assistant in most Juventus actions and is now left alone to lead Juventus economically and in prosperity.
Federico Cherubini’s Past
His professional football player days were not even close to being successful at the highest level, so we can say it helped him to familiarise himself with the game we love. Later on, his passion for football led him to his ‘managerial’ days, which were crucial for his overall achievement at the top stage.
Cherubini first started as an amateur player at Foligno, where he later shifted to the position of club manager. In this particular role, Federico got close to the promotion to Serie B with his side. He had evident connections with Sampdoria, so with both Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici.
Furthermore, our newly promoted chief had the chance to go to Sampdoria or even work for Perugia at that time. Yet, Cherubini decided to stay at Foligno. In 2012, Cherubini started to manage the youth teams at Juve that played in lower divisions and was the first Juventus U23 coordinator. Next, he became Paratici’s right hand and then successfully replaced him not so long ago.
The rest still awaits! We can only hope to be able to appreciate his brilliance in making deals done. Sincerely, the last thing Juventini currently need is a new sporting director with abilities being far from perfect.
Don’t forget to comment on your stance on Cherubini under our post on Twitter or below this post! I will gladly join you in the discussion.
As always, Fino Alla Fine, Forza Juve!
