He was instrumental in Juventus’ success in the second-half of the last decade and became an important player for the Old Lady due to his exceptional vision and passing, while his ability from set-piece situations was excellent as well.
Pjanic made 195 appearances for Juventus, scoring 22 goals and providing 33 assists as he won several trophies during his time at the club. He was sold to Barcelona in the summer of 2020 but has been rumored to return to Juventus
