Happy Birthday Captain!

Posted on 09/11/2010


Every day a new emotion, every day a new target. Alessandro Del Piero keeps on giving satisfactions to Juventus people and he keeps on crossing personal finish lines. Two days after the match vs. Cesena, in which he increased his presences to 650 (98 more that Gaetano Scirea) and he scored goal number 279 (exactly 100 more than Giampiero Boniperti), the Captain is ready to live another special moment, linked to his personal life. Today, Tuesday 9th of November, Alex is 36. 

Thirty-six birthdays, and the last 17 ones he celebrated wearing Juventus jersey. On the pitch, at work, to win new challenges. Like the one Juventus is going to face tomorrow in Brescia. «We are all already focused on this match»: he wrote on his own internet site http://www.alessandrodelpiero.com. 

The match at Rigamonti Stadium is an important cross road for Juventus championship. A few days from the challenge vs. Roma, but most of all after the victories over Milan and Cesena, which re-launched Del Neri’s team in ranking. 

Concerning the match with Cesena, Del Piero spoke deeply about it on the web. These are his words about the match: «Not at all obvious, let’s not be cheated by the gap between us and them in the ranking. It’s been tough, also because victory worth double in such a difficult situation as ours, due to the many absences. I’m really satisfied with the result, with the team’s performance and with my personal performance. It has been a nice Sunday, by which I take with myself also the nth demonstration of supporters’ affection at the Olimpico». 

But the Captain lingers particularly on the great emotions he lived during the pre-match, by the significant stars’ ceremony: «That has been so moving. Sure it will be a very difficult Sunday to forget, for me as for Juventus. The Club’s history, the celebration of the stars already shining in Juventus’ legend (what an emotion being there on the pitch with them!) and they will shine even more in the new stadium, which, from next season, will be our home and will also cherish the memory of our Club». 

To Alessandro, who has already entered Juventus’ legend, our best wishes for his 36th Birthday. From Juventus Club and from all his supporters. 

A birthday tribute prepared by Ale’s older brother. Buon compleanno Capitano.
