‘Did they get the bloke that did Pogba’s hair?’: Twitter reacts to new Juventus badgePublished January 17, 2017
Juventus launched their new club crest on Monday evening, to what can best be described as an extremely mixed reaction.
At an official event for players, fans and media, the Serie A giants heralded in a new era with the unveiling of the minimalist design.
Set amidst a black background, the updated crest features the club name in white above a double J sign in modern font.
But following the announcement, fans took to social media to voice their opinions on the new badge, with negative feedback centring on the loss of tradition brought about by removing the previous design- which dated back to 1971.
Here’s the best of the reaction on social media.
Some wondered if Paul Pogba’s hairdresser had been involved in the design process…

I designed the new Juventus logo— Zwë? (@ZwebackHD) January 17, 2017
While others pointed out that the crest did actually hark back to a bygone era…
Juventus the 1st club to fully embrace the modern football economy. Pitching itself as a lifestyle rather than a 90min outing on a Saturday.— RG? (@registability) January 16, 2017
Design is about taking risks and Juventus took a massive risk, I like it.— Scott Carroll (@scottcdesign) January 17, 2017
