The Top XI players from Juve’s winning dynasty (2011-2020)

May 6, 2021 - 9:00 pm

Last weekend’s Inter triumph spelled the end of the longest winning dynasty in Serie A history.

Between 2011/12 and 2019/20, Juventus won nine straight Scudetto in a row, which is an unprecedent achievement.

Whilst players came and went, the Old Lady managed to keep winning one league title after another. But who were its best players during that period.

ilBianconero picked the strongest XI players – in their own opinion – and fielded them in a 3-4-3 formation.

Unsurprisingly, Gianluigi Buffon was picked in goal, having played as the number one during the first seven triumphs before his departure for Paris Saint Germain.

Gigi’s compatriots Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini were picked in defense, but the surprise came in the exclusion of Leonardo Bonucci.

The 34-year-old played a major part in all Scudetto winning campaigns – except for the 2017/18 season which he spent at Milan. Matthijs de Ligt was chosen instead.

In the middle of the park, the four players chosen were all from the earlier years. Current manager Andrea Pirlo played a huge role in leading the midfield after his arrival from the Rossoneri in 2011.

The Maestro was thus chosen alongside his old teammates Claudio Marchisio and Arturo Vidal. Paul Pogba joined the team a year later, as the midfield unit became stronger than ever.

In attack, two Argentine stars were chosen. Paulo Dybala has been an influential member of the squad since his arrival in 2015, whilst his compatriot Carlos Tevez was the top star in-between 2013 and 2015.

The formation can’t be complete without the presence of one of the greatest footballers of all time in Cristiano Ronaldo, whilst the chosen manager is Max Allegri.

Best XI between 2011 and 2020 (3-4-3): Buffon; Barzagli, De Ligt, Chiellini; Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, Pogba; Dybala, Tevez, Ronaldo

    Del Piero didn’t get much playing time anymore back then in 2011, but I am still missing him. Vidal could be out. Bonucci didn’t deserve it as he always put in small mistakes. Chiellini is now still better than Bonucci. Barzagli was just the king of defending but slow running speed, which prevented him from becoming one of the best.

    This is laughable at best…
    Ronaldo in a starting line up (even if you play 3 forwards/strikers), are you joking?

    Dybala = 5 Scuddetti, 3 Coppa Italia & 1 UCL final
    Higuain = 3 Scudetti, 2 Coppa Italia & 1 UCL final
    Tevez = 2 Scudetti, 1 Coppa Italia & 1 UCL final

    How is Ronaldo better than that?
    Ronaldo = 2 Scudetti, 0 Coppa Italia & 0 UCL finals

    Is there no lenghts that Ronaldo fan boys will go to, to glorify a man, that based on merits can’t even make a starting line up even if you play 3 up front in the last 9 in a row period.

      Note: I forgot
      Mandzukic = 4 Scudetti, 3 Coppa Italia & 1 UCL final
      Pepe = 4 Scudetti, 1 Coppa Italia & 1 UCL final
      Morata = 2 Scudetti, 2 Coppa Italia & 1 UCL final
      And now Ronaldo can’t even make the squad for the 9 in a row period, seeing that:…
      Dybala, Mandzukic, Pepe, Higuain, Morata & Tevez all have achieved more than Ronaldo.
      Ronaldo in a starting line up, what a joke

    I would rather choose Mario Mandzukic or Gonzalo Higuain than CR7…….
    If, we were talking about club achievements…..

    And if we were also talking about that topic, De Ligt still has ways to go to replace Bonucci on the lineup, despite his crappy blunders…..
