Michele Pazienza's profile(Juventus Official Website)
A midfield destroyer, but not just one who ‘breaks up play’. Michele Pazienza matches quality with quantity. His game couples endless running and teamwork, with well-timed bursts into the box and crucial assists. Born on 5th August 1982, in San Severo (Foggia), he began his football education with ‘Gruppo Sportivo Apocalisse’ and joined Foggia at 17 years old, ready for the step up to professional football. He spent four seasons in Puglia, making a decisive contribution to the side’s promotion to C1 in his last campaign. The midfielder then moved to Udinese in Summer 2003, enjoying two years as a key component of the side before switching to Fiorentina. He was also a first team mainstay for two seasons in Firenze. During the mid-season transfer market, he elected to go south and join Napoli, becoming a vital cog in the team’s system. Pazienza scored his first Serie A goal on 13th December 2008 in the victory over Lecce. Three more strikes were to follow as he cemented his role in the side that has recently qualified for the 2011 Champions League.
