Del Piero: No pessimism at Juventus

Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero claims there is no pessimism within the dressing after back-to-back defeat in Serie A.

The Old Lady has got off to a terrible start to the New Year, losing heavily to Parma and Napoli.

Juventus haven't conceded seven goals in the League in consecutive games since 1988.

"The moment is not easy," Del Piero said. "In moments like these words count for little.

"We have to get as much out of ourselves from this situation as possible.

"We can't let pessimism or negativity take us by the hand.

"The New Year has just begun. There are still many points available to us.

"We are thinking about the ones we can still get from the second half of the season, which starts on Sunday against Bari, rather than the ones we haven't got.

"We are concentrating on the Coppa Italia match against Catania too. We are working hard and the results will surely arrive," he concluded.
