Maurizio Arrivabene is back in top sport, just not in Formula 1. The flamboyant Italian has to help football club Juventus get back on its feet after a lean year with a new investment plan.

The 64-year-old Italian has already had an interesting career. Born in Brescia, the man started at Philip Morris International in 1997, where he rose to become the vice president of Malboro Global Communication in 2007. Through Malboro he came into contact with Ferrari, which of course had Malboro's sponsorship on its car for many years.

Arrivabene back at the top

On 23 November 2014, Arrivabene was appointed to replace sacked team boss Marco Mattiacci. Arrivabene was given that opportunity by Sergio Marchionne, who was working on a new long-term project. It would not last long, however, as disappointing results meant the Italian was replaced by Mattia Binotto in 2019.

Now, however, Arrivabene gets to work at Juventus. The Italian football superpower experienced a less successful year last season under coach Andrea Pirlo, but wants to return to the top under Massimiliano Allegri. For this, the capital will be increased by 400 million euro, and the responsibility for football matters will be given to board member Arrivabene, according to the press release of the Italian football club.
