Fifa players have already grown used to playing as Piemonte Calcio, with Pro Evolution Soccer the only game to feature Juve’s proper name.

Luckily, the club’s stars will still have the same name so the likes of Chris Ronald, Adam Lambsey and Jean Buffoon will not be confusing gamers.

The latest edition of ever-popular Football Manager is already out on beta ahead of the full release on November 19.

Landing Juventus was a huge coup for Konami as the video-game giants try to capitalise on the Serie A champions’ popularity.

Cristiano Ronaldo has been reminded that no man is bigger than the club after storming out early following his substitution in the win over AC Milan.

His replacement Paulo Dybala scored the winner and senior figures in the dressing room have demanded that Ronaldo apologise for the lack of respect he showed.

It is a view echoed by manager Maurizio Sarri, who admitted: “If Cristiano left before the end, it’s a problem he will have to solve with his companions.”

Juventus themselves have been trying to diffuse the potential fall-out from Ronaldo’s walk-out, with the forward flying straight out to Portugal to link up with his national team.

The club have decided they will not be hitting the star with any fine, despite the anger his actions have caused.
