Del Piero on America and Conte

Alessandro Del Piero has opened the door to a future in America, while also passing comment on the Antonio Conte to Juventus rumours.

Del Piero recently signed a new contract in Turin which will see him remain until June 2012, before possibly ending his career abroad.

"I think I can play on," he told Sky Sport Italia. "In America? That could be a possibility. It's a country that I do like.

"I could also take advantage of such an opportunity by going to watch the LA Lakers play…"

The Juventus captain was also inevitably questioned on the speculation that former teammate Conte would be his Coach next term.

"I'll be happy to greet him, whether he is the new boss or not," Alex continued. "If the new Coach is Conte then I'll welcome him."
