Writing in his newspaper column, Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo has hailed his teammate Alessandro Del Piero as a legend. 

The Brazil international has taken up the pen for Globoesporte in order to promote Juventus in South America. 

“I want you to get to know Juve,” Melo wrote. “For those who don’t know Juve, they are the team with the most fans in Italy. 

“Almost 30 per cent of Italians support this historic club, which is the one that has won more League titles than anyone. 

“I am very proud to wear this shirt. We have a modern training ground with seven pitches and with all the infrastructure an athlete needs.”

Melo’s piece was accompanied by a photo of him with Del Piero, with whom he has developed a strong bond. 

“In one of the photos in which you see me, I am close to a legend – Ale Del Piero who is a king here. 

“He has been at this club since 1993 and he has scored more than 300 goals in this shirt. When I asked him to pose for a photo for the Brazilians he came running.”
