Juventus 1996 - No.10 Del Piero.

As Carlo Ancelotti once said "He is a world-class player who needs no introductions". Alessandro Del Piero is a “l’uomo simbolo”, a symbol, of Juventus. He is the last of a dying breed of men who played their entire careers with one club. More than footballers, they embody the heart, spirit and soul of their respective cities and teams.

A player with such excellent technique and vision, Del Piero holds many records at the Turin club, including goals scored and appearances, over 300 and 770 respectively. He is in sixth place in the UEFA Champions League all-time goalscorer chart, having won the trophy in 1996.

During the Calciopoli scandals and amidst Juventus' relegation to Serie B, "Il Pinturicchio" remained loyal to the Old Lady. Big-money offers from top European clubs around the world were compounded by the walking out of a number of his teammates. Del Piero claimed that, as captain, the thought of leaving Turin didn't even cross his mind.
A king on and off the pitch: Alessandro Del Piero, a true legend of the game.
