Juventus Gets Back To "The Show"

Alessandro Del Piero and Giorgio Chiellini both scored twice as Juventus returned to Serie A in style with an emphatic win away to Arezzo. In a campaign Del Piero has described as a nightmare, the Bianconeri have won the Serie B title with three games to spare. Boss Didier Deschamps had this to say:
It is a very joyful occasion, I asked my lads to make sure the result was decided this weekend and it's only right that now they celebrate. We put together so many points and despite it all this has been a very difficult year. We could not stand Serie B any more! This should not be compared to other achievements of the past. It was a great goal that will remain in history and an adventure on a human level. I am satisfied with the squad and very proud to have taken Juve back where they belong.
What remains now is to see what kind of side the club put out next season. Rumors have been rampant concerning the departures of several prominent players, including, but not limited to Gianluigi Buffon, Mauro Camoranesi, and David Trezeguet. Let the silly season begin.
