Aftermath of calciopoli[edit]

Juventus were deducted nine points and had their 2004-05 and 2005-06 Scudetti revoked among other punishments. The 2005-06 Scudetto was given to Internazionale as runners-up Milan were deducted points for their involvement in the scandal. Following the sanctions, Juventus played outside the top flight for the first time in their history, leaving Internazionale as the only Italian club never to have been relegated.

The club's relegation prompted a mass exodus of key players including defenders Fabio Cannavaro and Lilian Thuram, midfielder Patrick Vieira and striker Zlatan Ibrahimović.[1] Other important players such as captain Alessandro Del Piero, Gianluigi Buffon, Pavel Nedvěd, David Trezeguet and Mauro Camoranesi chose to remain. At the same time, a host of young players from the Primavera team were promoted after winning the Campionato Primavera the previous season and several of them went on to play a part in Juventus' promotion success.

Events[edit]

In July 2006, former player Didier Deschamps was announced as the new manager following the resignation of Fabio Capello, who left for Spanish club Real Madrid.

The club made its Serie B debut on September 9, 2006, earning their first ever point in Serie B with a 1-1 draw away to Rimini. After that, Juventus won its next eight games, scoring 16 goals and conceding just one. The winning streak ended with a 1-1 draw at Napoli. In that game, goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon's streak of not conceding a goal ended at 733 minutes. Against Albinoleffe, Buffon was shown the red card for the first time in his career and conceded a penalty, but a 10-man Juve team managed to draw the game. They were undefeated in Serie B until the team lost at Mantova on Jan. 14, 2007.

On December 15, 2006, two Berretti (U-18) youth players Alessio Ferramosca, age 17, and Riccardo Neri, age 16, drowned in a lake at the club's training ground in Vinovo, Turin, apparently when trying to recover a football that had fallen into the ice-cold water. The Juventus vs Cesena (Serie B) game scheduled for that day was cancelled and postponed until January due to the tragedy.

On May 19, 2007, after a 5-1 away win at Arezzo on the 39th matchday, Juventus was mathematically promoted to Serie A. On Matchday 40, Juventus were then crowned Serie B champions following a 2-0 home win to Mantova On May 26, it was confirmed that Deschamps had resigned as manager due to differences with the club hierarchy, especially director of football Alessio Secco. His assistant Giancarlo Corradini was appointed caretaker for the last two games. On 4 June, Claudio Ranieri was announced as the new manager on the club website as Corradini stepped down to take up another management job full-time.[3]
