Alessandro Del Piero IS Juventus. Arriving from Padova in 1993, Del Piero went on to play in 503 games for the Bianconeri, scoring over 200 goals. Known for his excellent positioning, great technique and set piece-skills, Alex was the face of Juventus for over a decade.
In 2006, after the Calciopoli scandal, Del Piero pledged his allegiance to Juventus and helped the team regain its position amongst the very best of world football.
Three years later, Del Piero was considered too old for football, relegated to the bench. For three straight years the most prolific striker in Bianconeri history did what he had always done: score goals. Coming off the bench, Del Piero scored countless important goals for Juventus in the last stage of his career, earning the tile of Super Sub.
His services no longer needed, Del Piero signed with Australian side Sydney FC in the summer of 2012. Four weeks into the season, Juventus fans everywhere are already complaining about the lack of quality strikers on the team.
Del Piero was given a standing ovation after his last game in the Juventus stadium, a win over Atalanta Bergamo that saw the Bianconeri finish the season unbeaten. It was a beautiful ending to number 10's incredible run with the team he had dreamed of representing since childhood.
