Ferrara set to quit Tuesday 28 December, 2004

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Juventus veteran Ciro Ferrara will retire from the game at the end of this current campaign.

"I am still under contract with Juventus but once this season ends I will hang up my boots," he admitted. "However, I will then begin a job as a club official for the Bianconeri."

The former Italian international stopper, who is now 37-years-old, has enjoyed a majestic career.

Born in Napoli, Ferrara made his Serie A debut for his home-town club in the 1984-85 season.

He won two League titles at the San Paolo before winning five more at Juventus following his 1994 move to Turin.

Why not? Not only good looks matters. He has a fine presence and loads of charm actually. He also has a nice voice, he was the least ridiculous signing 'Il mio canto libero'!

Capello should field him for the last game at Delle Alpi, a fully packed one for the circumstance hopefully.

Above all else... Ferrara is a model professional, a model defender, a true great. Both as a man and as a Juve player :proud: :star: .

Hopefully he will end his carrier on the field with a big triumph. He deserves nothing less after a carrier as immense as it has been.

Defenitely a legend. He only represented 2 clubs in his career( Napoli, Juve) and he played with great player like Maradona, Careca, Zidane and Del Piero. Ferrara was among the best markers in the world at his prime, athletic and always on the right place. Now at the age of 37 it's time to retire and when his contract expires in June I'm sure he will.

Thats right. Maradona said that Ciro was the best defender he has known.

Good memories with Ferrara. Slowly slowly the old generation will be hangin up their boots. :frownani:

Who's next, Conte? Pessotto? I wonder if Juve will ever have more players in the future that will emulate their successes and accomplishments. :proud: :hopefull:

I want to see more modest-player-turned-hero/legendary in the future. :proud: :heart:

Rhizoid Conte is already retired. Remember the shot he had against Milan that hit the post in the Champions League Final. That was the best shot of the game, outside the box on the run. It was nice.

Oh...I've been cut off from the football world since september :stress:

Yeah, but my favorite Conte moment was when he scored that vital goal vs. Olympiakos in Athens. It was Carletto's 1st game in the CL for us.
