On 4 June 2007, Claudio Ranieri was appointed the new manager following the resignation of Didier Deschamps.[1] With the club back in Serie A, new signings such as Czech international Zdeněk Grygera, Portuguese midfielder Tiago Mendes and Sergio Almirón were brought in to strengthen the squad while promising youngsters such as Sebastian Giovinco, Claudio Marchisio and Paolo De Ceglie were sent out on loan or co-ownership deals.

Juventus finished third that season to qualify for next season's Champions League, their first participation in that competition since 2005-06. Notable results included victories over rivals A.S. Roma, Inter, A.C. Milan and Lazio in the second half of the season.
