Del Piero: “It is a very delicate moment”

Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero says the Bianconeri are in a ‘very delicate moment’ and refused to be drawn on if he’s been offered a role at the club. The former Bianconeri captain is being linked with a return to Juve in a managerial role following the resignation of the clubs board of directors earlier in the week. Del Piero went as far as sharing a post on his social media channels, saying he was following the story like other Juventini, but offered no suggestion he would be taking up a role.

Speaking to BeIn Sport in his role as a pundit at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, he once again reiterated that it’s a delicate moment for now:

“What’s happening is that Juventus are going through a delicate moment, so as a former player and captain, I am following the situation closely.

It is a very delicate moment. What I wanted to do in my statement on Instagram was recognise that people will link me to Juventus because 19 years of history is a great deal for me and the club. Naturally, I am going to keep an eye on the situation.

At the same time, being a delicate moment, the most important thing for those who love Juventus – and I am among them – is to let the professionals who have been chosen to lead the club do their job.

People continually ask me about comments or advice, but I don’t want to give answers that could be speculated upon, let alone answer to rumours. I understand the position of the media, that I can comment on this situation and am following it closely, hoping things can be resolved as quickly as possible.

What I wrote on Instagram is what I want to say. I don’t want to say if it’s true or not that I received phone calls, or what I would or wouldn’t like to do.

At this moment there are other priorities, so the best thing I can do right now is stay in my place and not comment further.”
