Immortal Del Piero takes Juve to the top

Posted on | November 6, 2008 | 3 Comments

When you say Alessandro Del Piero, your thoughts take you to the Italian football club Juventus Torino.

Immortal Del Piero

Immortal Del Piero

And why is that?Is it because he has played most of his football career at Juve, since 1993 when he transferred to Torino?Is it because Del Piero is currently the all-time top scorer for Juventus scoring 247 goals, in all competitions and he has also made over 557 appearances in official matches for the club ?Is it because he refused to leave the club during the Calciopoli scandal, when Juve was relegated, and preferred to stay at the club and play in Serie B when he could have easily transferred to other top European clubs?

The answer to these questions is yes, but the main reason is because he is a hero.He is a hero for the club, for the fans,for his teammates and even for his opponents, he is the kind of football player that can decide a football match on his own and drag the team after him.The match against all time Champions League winners Real Madrid on Wednesday was a perfect description of just what Del Piero is about.He score two magnificent goals after a glorious performance, and brought besides another win in Champions League,the qualification into the next round of the competition,and it restored Juve‘s pride and image after the Calciopoli scandal.Del Piero was highly regarded even by the opponents ,when he was substituted he gathered applause from the crowd present at Santiago Bernabeu, thing that doesn’t happen every day .

Aged 34 Del Piero plays as if he is at the begining of his carrer, and keeps on bringing a lot of joy into the hearts of all Juventus fans around the world.The 2-0 victory against Real Madrid had another special meaning for Juve besides the qualification to the next round, it meant the first victory in 46 years for Juve against Real on Santiago Bernabeu.It seems that Del Piero is the man that writes the history and is the record breaker at Juventus.I wonder what is the next record he will beat for Juve.

    Great goals by Del Pierro.
    I was amazed before the game for the high odds bookmakers offered for a Juve win.

    Good post, keep up the good work. Great players in any sport are always cheered and respected by their fans but also by the opposition and their fans as well. Del Pierro has had a great career to date and is still going strong.
