Head coach Unai Emery said of the signing: “Stephan brings huge experience and leadership to our squad.
“He’s a player with great quality with a very positive and determined attitude. Stephan will improve us on and off the pitch.”
Thirty-four sounds old, though Lichtsteiner featured 32 times for Juventus last season, which tells he is still capable of conducting business at the highest level.
