Del Piero: 'What Juve need...'

Alessandro Del Piero reveals why he missed the Juventus Scudetto party and what they need to win the Champions League.

The Sydney FC star is back in Turin for a photographic exhibition dedicated to his career and spoke about his former teammates.

“I was unable to go to the stadium for the Scudetto match. I couldn’t find a ticket,” he joked.

“I followed their progress from Australia and I’m very happy with their second consecutive Scudetto. They were fantastic and it was a great achievement.

“I don’t know what it’ll take for Juve to bridge the gap with the big European clubs. In order to win the Champions League you don’t just need great players and a great club, but also a different chemistry.

“Just look at Borussia Dortmund, who until the last minute of the quarter-final were eliminated, so it needs other factors that you just can’t plan for.”

When asked who seems to be the next Del Piero, he laughed.

“Nobody looks like me now, they’ve all got mohicans!”
