He was also named in the 2016–17 UEFA Champions League Squad of the Season, for his role in Juventus’s run to the Final. At Juventus he is affectionately known as “Il Pianista” (“the Pianist”; Bosnian: “Pijanist”) in reference to his surname and his creative role on the pitch.
Throughout Pjanić’s career he has excelled at free-kicks, making him one of the most skillful and versatile midfielders in Europe. Overall in his career, he has scored 66 goals with more than 100 decisive passes, nimbly assisting his teammates with his range of short and long, while remaining calm and focused in order to fulfill his potential and consequently assisting his team to victory.
