Juventus’ Giovinco shuts down Facebook account
Despite being tied with fellow forwards Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella as the club’s top scorer with 11 goals in all competitions, the Italian international has often been singled out by sections of the Bianconeri supporters due to his perceived profligacy in front of goal.
The 26-year-old attacker began his youth career with Juventus, where he began his professional career in 2006 before being loaned out to Empoli and Parma, who opted to buy out half of his contract for €3 million during the 2011-2012 season.
His 15 goals and 11 assists for Parma were enough to earn him a return back to his former club, who re-signed him for €11 million in 2012 and he found himself competing for a position in the starting XI with fellow strikers Vucinic, Quagliarella, and Alessandro Matri.
Since re-signing for Juventus, he has netted 11 times, including his first Champions League goal against Danish side Nordsjælland and another against reigning champions Chelsea.
Yet, despite this, some fans believe that he often fails to score at critical moments, and hence have taken to the social media platform to express their discontent.
