Serie A champions Juventus will not
put a controversial third star on their shirts for next season
but will instead have the slogan "30 won on the pitch" printed
under their club crest.
The club drew criticism when they put three stars on their
stadium and headquarters after winning the league last month to
highlight their assertion they have won 30 titles.
"The new Juventus shirt will not have a third star on it,"
the club's' commercial director Francesco Calvo told Sky Sport
"Instead under the club logo will be the words '30 won on
"Our shirt represents Juventus and its people, and only the
club along with the fans can define our identity."
Juventus have officially won 28 Italian championships after
being stripped of the 2005 and 2006 titles for their role in the
"calciopoli" match-fixing scandal.
Adding a third star risked punishment from the Italian
Football Federation and the football league, who allocate them
for each set of 10 league titles won.
