Del Piero: 'Dedicated to my teammates'

Alessandro Del Piero dedicated his stunning goal “to the team” as their captain revived Juventus.

The Bianconeri had managed just one point from the last four rounds before Del Piero's slalom secured a 2-1 victory over Brescia.

“I dedicate this goal to the team, every one of us, because we needed this victory,” said the 36-year-old.

“We've got to get out of this crisis and I hope the result is a good omen for the future.

“We really wanted all three points today, so the tension and adrenaline pushed us on through the final stages.

“I also tried to help keep my teammates alert and fired up on the field.”
