World-class. Legend. King. Captain.
A lot of words come to mind when thinking of Alessandro Del Piero, none more so than today on the legendary forward's 42nd birthday.
In a Juve career spanning 19 years, the Del Piero story is one of drama, magic and above all record-breaking feats.
Making his Juve bow on 12 September 1993, Alex would go on to indellibly write his name not only in the history books of Italy’s most successful club for his sustained goalscoring brilliance and long-serving loyalty to the Old Lady but also for his national team, with whom he memorably won the World Cup in 2006.
Alessandro’s Bianconeri legacy will forever be remembered for its breath-taking strikes, crucial assists and trophy-laden success and as such, it is with great pleasure that everyone involved with Juventus Football Club wishes him many happy returns on his special day.
Happy Birthday, Alessandro Del Piero.
