New minimalist Juventus logo sparks Twitter backlash from fans

As you may be aware, Juventus have proudly ditched the classic club crest that has served them well for the past 46 years in favour of a new, streamlined "logo."

The Bianconeri launched the new design at a ceremony in Milan on Monday night, with club president Andrea Agnelli heralding the logo as a "symbol of the Juventus way of living."
