Juventus shirts will not have third golden star but '30 won on the pitch' motto

The Bianconeri sparked outrage by refusing to acknowledge the fact that they were stripped of two Scudetti because of their alleged involvement in Calciopoli

Juventus have decided against sewing a third golden star onto their shirts but the words "30 won on the pitch" will appear beneath the club crest.

The Bianconeri lifted the Scudetto last month and angered many of their rivals by revealing that they would put a third gold star on their jerseys in recognition of what they believe is their 30th Serie A title, even though they were stripped of two championships in the Calciopoli scandal.

However, Juve commercial director Francesco Calvo has now revealed that the club has had something of a change of heart.

“The new Juventus shirt will not have the third star on it,” the Bianconeri official told Sky Sport Italia. “Instead, under the club logo, will appear the words: 30 won on the pitch.

"Our shirt represents Juventus and their people. Only the club, along with all the fans, can define our identity.”

Juve lifted the title after becoming only the third side in history to go through an entire Serie A campaign undefeated.
