Italian Serie A giant, Juventus, have confirmed the signing of Dario Knežević from Livorno. The team announced the news Monday and are happy they signed the 26 year old Croatian who almost landed with city rivals, Torino.
Knežević injured his knee in the last group match versus Poland in Euro 2008. Although this ended his Euro campaign, the injury was anything but serious. Croatians are now playing football at the highest level of European competition. The only Croat from the national team to still be playing in Croatia is Nikola Kalinić, but that shouldn’t last long either.
Manchester City, Tottenham, Arsenal, Portsmouth, Shakhtar Donetsk, Schalke, Hamburg and now Juventus are all clubs that the top Croatians play for. But will Ajax of Holland also be put on this list? Time will tell.
