Juventus legend Enrique Omar Sivori died on Thursday night at the age of 69.

The Argentinian, who had been working as a scout for Juve in his native Argentina, was suffering from pancreatic cancer and passed away in the city of San Nicolas, near Buenos Aires.

At Juventus, Sivori won the Scudetto in 1958, 1960 and 1961 as well as two Italian Cups and, due to his dual nationality, won the Ballon d’Or award in 1961.

He made his debut at River Plate at age 17, before moving to Juventus in 1957 for a then record transfer fee of £93,000.

After representing Argentina 19 times he switched nationality and played for Italy in the 1962 World Cup finals in Chile.
