ADP offers Diego solution

Posted on 18/07/2010


Alessandro Del Piero has told Gigi Del Neri that he can play in the same side as Diego, despite the Juventus Coach suggesting otherwise.

Diego has struggled in Turin since signing from Werder Bremen last summer and the new Bianconeri gaffer believes it will difficult to play both the Brazilian and Del Piero in the same system.

However, the Juventus legend feels his boss should give them a chance before jumping to conclusions.

“Obviously Del Neri thinks we cover the same spot on the pitch,” said Del Piero.

“But during the season he will be able to reconsider his opinion and perhaps find different solutions.

“Diego and I are not against each other, we are both focused on doing well for the team.

“I think the Coach felt he had to comment on our situation and I don’t think there is much more to say about this at moment.”

Del Piero is clearly hoping Juventus will improve on last season, when they failed to qualify for Champions League football.

“We don’t really have a target for the next campaign,” noted the Bianconeri captain.

“Our hope is to finish the season proud of our achievements. We must regain our confidence.

“I really hope Del Neri is the right man for us. He has done a lot in the past and is delighted to be at Juve.”
