A.Del Piero, Juventus's legendary current captain, admitted his interest in playing for Italy's most successful club FC. Internazionale.

In a press conference, where Alex seeked to clear up all the commotion, he stated: "I'm one of the best forwards in the history of Italy, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to many why I find a move to fellow rival Internazionale tempting."

"In my stay at Juventus, the club lacked the titles and grandeur that we all know is present at Inter. Why the idea struck me so late in my career is, I admit, cheer stupidity by my side."

"Internazionale, in my belief, is the club which best represents Italy. Unlike Juventus, Inter sports a squad which is full of Italian players. You rarely find a South American player, Brazilian or Argentinian, in Inter, while the same can't be said about Juventus."

"Though I was notified that A.C. Milan is interested in securing my services, since I crossed the age limit of 35, I'm still convinced that a move to Inter is more apt."

"I'm attracted by the prospect of playing under J.Mourinho, Inter's modest manager, who doesn't think he's special in any possible way. He's always polite with the press, and never disrespects any other manager in the league."

"What I'm even more enticed by is having Moratti as the club owner. He's not your typical wealthy prick of an owner who dates girls 50 years younger than him, but an honest and loyal man with family values and principles."

"Is Inter the club that needed the Calciopoli scandal to become Italy's best? I think not. Is Inter's last Champions League title of a rusty nature? I also think not."

When asked why would he want to tarnish his legacy of being a historic captain of the Bianconeri by moving to Inter, the 35 year-old explained: "Playing next to people who don't know the meaning of sportsmanship and fair play (Chiellini, Buffon, Marchisio, Sissoko, Camoranesi and Trezeguet) is a fact which disturbs me. I'm looking forward to play alongside the likes of W.Samuel, Lucio, Cambiasso, Materazzi, Balotelli and Cordoba who don't believe in violence and aggression while playing the game."
