John Charles - In this photo, you can see the great John Charles in action for Juventus, against Arsenal at Highbury in 1958. Charles is a bona fide Juve legend, and was once voted their best ever foreign player, ahead of greats like Zinedine Zidane and Michel Platini. The Welshman spent five years with Juve, in which time he scored 93 goals. In 2001 'Il Gigante Buono' ('The Gentle Giant', as he was known in Italy) became the first non-Italian inducted to the Azzurri Hall of Fame.
