Five Players on Loan

It is customary during foreign summer tours to bring players from other clubs. In the case of Juventus, since six players were selected for Marcello Lippi's South African team, five replacements were requested.

"In campo, agli ordini di Alberto Zaccheroni, anche i cinque ragazzi presi in prestito per le due gare contro New York Red Bulls e Fiorentina: il portiere Francesco Baldi, il difensore Alessandro Bernardini (entrambi del Livorno), il difensore Goncalo Jardim Brandao del Siena, Albin Ekdal (anch’esso in arrivo dal Siena) e il centrocampista dell’Atalanta Simone Padoin."
