He was one of the players that helped the team get promoted back to Serie A after just one season.
For Juventus he officially won the Serie A 5 times (actually 7 times but the last 2 were invalidated due to the Calciopoli scandal), the Serie B title 2006/07, four times the Italian Super Cups, once the Italian Cup, once the UEFA Champions League, once the European Super Cup, once the Intercontinental Cup, and once the Intertoto Cup.
