Juventus have confirmed that Martin Caceres, whose contract expires today, will leave the club.
Caceres managed just a handful of appearances in the 2015/16 season due to a series of injury problems and disciplinary issues but he’ll be “forever remembered” at Juve.
An official statement on the clubs website confirmed Caceres’ departure from the club:
“Juventus Football Club can today confirm the departure of Martin Caceres, whose contract expires today on 30 June 2016.
“Now at the end of his second spell with the Bianconeri, the Uruguayan defender will be forever remembered as one of eight players to have featured in all five of the Old Lady’s history-making consecutive Scudetto titles, to which he added three Italian Super Cups and two Coppa Italia crowns.
“Although limited to just 449 minutes of action in his final campaign in Turin following lengthy injury lay-offs inflicted in October and February, Martin will be remembered fondly by fans and players alike for his sterling service to the club.
“This year’s Serie A triumph is still the Uruguayan’s fifth in a row for the Bianconeri who haven’t looked back since welcoming him into their ranks, a remarkable achievement nonetheless for a player who has enjoyed nothing but success throughout his career to date.
“All associated with the club would like to thank Martin for his efforts in a history-making five-season spell and wish him all the best for the future, whatever it may hold.”
The 29-year-old defender played a part in each of Juve’s successful scudetto campaigns, winning 5 in total during his time at the club, along with 3 Supercoppa, 2 Coppa Italia and a Champions League runners-ups medal. Caceres made 85 appearances for Juventus in total, scoring 6 goals – GRAZIE MARTIN !
