With this weekend’s Derby d’Italia between Inter Milan and Juventus, we thought it would be a good time to explore some of the players who have donned both shirts during their career.

We have to thank both Inter Milan and Juventus team websites for information.

Here you go:

Inter Milan v Siena

Christian “Bobo” Vieri

Vieri had a storied career with Inter Milan between 1999 and 2005. Over the course of his Inter career, Vieri had 123 goals in 190 appearances. He was the leading scorer in Serie A in the 2002-03 season, scoring 24 goals. He was also Footballer of the Year for Italy in 1999.

Of course, Vieri played one season with Juventus before joining Inter. He was part of the Italian Cup champion, UEFA Super Cup champion teams in 1996 and 1997.
