Del Piero won't play "against" Juve

Alessandro Del Piero is looking forward to meeting his former club Juventus in August, although he says he could never say he is playing against them.

Del Piero will captain an Australian A-League selection to face the Bianconeri in a friendly match on August 10. "It's going to be emotional," said the 39-year-old Sydney FC forward at a news conference. "It's a big game for the future of Australian football and an occasion which means a great deal to me.

"It's going to be strange. As far as I'm concerned, putting the word 'against' between 'Del Piero' and 'Juventus' is not possible. My relationship with the Juventus fans has never broken down, and it never will do.

"For me, Juve was always about 'one love' so let's just say that on Aug. 10, I will be facing Juventus, with the shirt of the A-League All Stars. It should be a celebration for the whole of Australian football and I think this really is a great opportunity to celebrate the improvements football has made in Australia.

"The way it has grown in the past two years is extraordinary and I'm happy to have witnessed this period here. This game is the chance to increase even further the popularity of the game."

Del Piero joined Sydney in 2012 after his contract with Juventus expired. He scored 14 goals in his first season before becoming club captain last year, helping to raise the profile of the game Down Under.
