Legend hints to Juve return

18 January 2014 [09:45] - TODAY.AZ
Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero has hinted he could return to the Scudetto winners in the future.

The striker, 39, left Turin in 2012 to play for Sydney FC - where he still resides - after 19 years at the Turin giants, having lifted European and domestic trophies galore including a final, championship-winning season.

Although his playing days in a Bianconeri shirt are unquestionably over, the former Italy international harbours hope he will be back at the reigning Serie A champions in another capacity someday.

"I will not rule out a return to Juventus," he told Rai Sport. "During my life I have never closed the door to anything or anyone, let alone if those doors are to a possible return to Turin.

"When I left I felt dazed. I had a love affair with Juventus and will have one forever."

Del Piero also complimented the way that Antonio Conte's men have shone in Serie A this season as they chase their third consecutive Italian title.

"Juventus this year have brought to mind a particular adjective: awesome," the Juve icon continued.

"Conte is their engine but the players have shown their willingness to succeed under him."
