Juventus veteran Marchisio bids farewell to club after 25 years

Juventus veteran midfielder Claudio Marchisio on Friday said he had ended his contract with the Serie A champions by mutual agreement after 25 years at the club.

The 32 year old, born and raised in Turin, made his professional debut in the second-tier Serie B in 2006 after Juventus were relegated following the Calciopoli corruption scandal.
