Del Piero taught me well, says Pepe

Simone Pepe reveals he's been getting tips on his set piece technique from Juventus teammate Alessandro Del Piero.

“I often stay behind after training with Del Piero to practice free kicks,” said the winger after scoring an audacious effort in tonight's 1-1 draw with Fiorentina.

A Marco Motta own goal had given the Viola an early lead, but in the final minutes Pepe surprised Artur Boruc with a looping effort.

“We played very well in the second half and could even have won it at the end, but Fiorentina also had a good game.”

Some will see it as a wasted opportunity in the Scudetto race, as leaders Milan were also held to a 1-1 stalemate at Sampdoria earlier today.

“We must look only at our own progress this season, but admittedly with a victory we would've scraped two points off the gap from Milan.”
