Greats Of The Game | Alessandro Del Piero, Forward
Del Piero is widely regarded by players, pundits, and managers as one of the greatest players of his generation, and as one of the best Italian players of all time, winning the Serie A Italian Footballer of the Year award in 1998 and 2008. A prolific goal-scorer, he is currently the second highest all-time Italian top-scorer in all competitions, with 346 goals, behind only Silvio Piola, with 390 goals; he is also the joint ninth highest goalscorer in Serie A history, with 188 goals, alongside Giuseppe Signori and Alberto Gilardino. After beginning his career with Italian club Padova in Serie B in 1991, he moved to Juventus F.C. in 1993, where he played for 19 seasons (11 as captain), and holds the club records for most goals (290) and appearances (705). During his time at the club, he won six Serie A titles, the Coppa Italia, four Supercoppa Italiana titles, the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup, the UEFA Intertoto Cup, and the Intercontinental Cup. After leaving the club in 2012, he also spent two seasons with Australian side Sydney FC; he retired after a season with Delhi Dynamos FC in the Indian Super League, in 2014.
Del Piero has scored in every competition in which he has participated. In 2004, he was named in the FIFA 100, a list of the 125 greatest living footballers selected by Pelé as a part of FIFA’s centenary celebrations. In the same year, he was also voted into the UEFA Golden Jubilee Poll, a list of the 50 best European players of the past 50 years. Along with six awards in Italy for gentlemanly conduct, he has also won the Golden Foot award, which pertains to personality as well as playing ability.
*me during international break* how do people survive without wonderful football it is brings so much peace and happiness to my life
*me after break* what is it like to be free of the strangle of football in your life and inevitable misery, suffering and pain it brings and the feeling of your soul being crushed by the weight of broken hopes and dreams and bad refereeing

The last rumors said that Adrian Mutu ex-player of Juventus and right know player of Fiorentina will join the Juventus squad again. We can remember him as a player of the Capello’s Juventus before Calciopoli. He will arrive on a loan until the end of the season. He will replace the injured Fabio Quagliarella.
He is a great player no doubts but he left the year of calciopoli. How the fans will take his return to the Juventus team?
