ALEX DEL PIERO -THE LEGEND DEPARTS AS JUVE CELEBRATE IN TURIN
On Sunday it was an emotional day for me as my man and Juventus Legend Alessandro Del Piero parted ways with Juventus Football Club. 19 Years and 290 goals for the Bianconerri. It was emotional and full of tears. I started supporting Juve way back in 1996 when I went to Euro 96 in England and bought my first Juventus Long Sleeves kit. From then I became a fan of Del Piero and now in 2012 Alex has left the club at age 37. A loyal servant and a man who stuck with the Bianconeri since the Calciopoli scandal and Serie B. Del Piero is a legend and his send off was no different. The Juevntus stadium said farewell to Alex when he completed his lap of honour with tears in his eyes.
Del Piero said that you could see the passion and emotion in the eyes of the fans. For me it was emotional as well. I say goodbye to Alex and as a Juventus Fan we will miss him.

Nothing, but… what you have given me in these 19 years.
I’m happy that you have smiled, cheered, cried, sung, shouted for me and with me.
No color will ever be brighter for me than black and white.
You’ve made my dream come true. More than any other thing, today I just want to say THANK YOU.
Always by your side

Meanwhile Juve lifted the Scudetto and for me as a Bianconero was special. Im enjoying the celebrations and next year we have serious business and hard work.
Meanwhile AC Milan said goodbye to their legends. Gatusso,Inzaghi,Zambrotta and Nesta. They are also Azurri and for me its also a sad moment as I say goodbye to an ERA.
Juventus Celebrate the Title
