Del Piero: ‘The fun starts here!’

Posted on 27/02/2010


Alessandro Del Piero can’t wait to get stuck into “the fun part of the season against Fulham, Palermo and Fiorentina.”

Juventus have been reborn under Alberto Zaccheroni and notched up three consecutive victories, taking them into fourth place and the final 16 of the Europa League.

“A knockout competition like this allows us to always set new objectives,” wrote the captain on his official website.

“It also helps us to understand that everything we do, at least up to the Final, is just one step forward on that path. You need to keep going, step by step, to go all the way.”

Thursday’s 0-0 draw with Ajax was enough to qualify after their 2-1 victory in Amsterdam, so the Bianconeri will face Roy Hodgson’s Fulham in the next round.

“We eliminated a top side and in the second leg played with character, controlling the game and above all keeping a clean sheet. That’s a good sign, as it hadn’t happened in a month.

“Our next test is with Fulham in two weeks and then we visit Craven Cottage. For now we must focus only on Serie A, as on Sunday it’s Palermo and then Fiorentina.

“There’s no time to get distracted, as the fun part of the season starts here.”
