We needed the game of the Heart to bring Alessandro Del Piero at Juventus Stadium. Yesterday, the Juventus legend has announced his adhesion in the European Champion team for Research, will play then, unbelievable, alongside Andrea Agnelli, John Elkann, Pavel Nedved and Massimiliano Allegri against the Singers Team. A clear sign of defrosting after a period away from Juve, though always remained in his heart.
After the last game against Atalanta, in one day in May of 2012, the gap had been difficult so much that Ale, then submerged by applause of the fans, chose a destination on the other bread of the world, Australia, as sometimes it happens when it ends a great love. Del Piero has never hidden the nostalgia for Juve, even when he suddenly fell silent, when President Andrea Agnelli did not call him more, when life’s envisaged new horizons. He’s always been fond of those colors carved on his skin.
In recent months he visited the Piedmont Foundation for Cancer Research of Candiolo, chaired by Allegra Agnelli. And when Alessandro has received the invitation of Mrs. Agnelli for the Match of the Heart, of which collection will go to Candiolo and Telethon, he phoned back formalizing his participation.
“I am very happy and honored to be invited -said Del Piero – therefore I said YES enthusiastically. For me is one nice return, both at the Juventus Stadium, and you know how much I care for you, both to the Match of the Heart that I played in 2009 and of which I have wonderful memories. I’ll see you at the Juventus Stadium! .. “
