Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero reacts to board resignations

The entire board of Juventus including president Andrea Agnelli and vice president Pavel Nedved announced their resignations on Monday night.

It comes after a preliminary investigation by the Turin Public Prosecutor's Office into fraudulent accounting and alleged hidden payments to players.

A shareholders' meeting will be held on January 18 to choose a new board.


legend Alessandro Del Piero who is working as a tv pundit during the World Cup has said he is ready to help his former team in any way possible.

“You're asking the question to someone like me that spent almost 20 years there,"

Del Piero told beIN SPORTS.

"I got relegated with the team and I decided to stay so the relationships with me and the team, with the owners, the fans, are quite deep, very deep.

"We've been through everything to reach the top of the world and the bottom point in the club's entire history. This great journey brought me here with you.

"It's something where every news regarding Juve is emotional for me and I'm going to stand by and see what's going to happen.

"I was with them this summer for the tour they did in Los Angeles where I lived, and also in Lisbon. I'm friends with Pavel and everybody. It's sad for me seeing this situation."

Del Piero added:

"I don't know the plan; nobody has called me. I don't know what's going to happen, but I know very well all that's happened. I still have a house in the city..."

Juventus was relegated to Serie B in the 2006-07 season following the Calciopoli scandal, but Del Piero insists that the current situation will not affect the team.

"This is not regarding the team; it's not going to affect the team in terms of relegation or other things,"

he said.

"It's going to affect the people because it's allegations ongoing about the people, not only the president but the other board members. This will affect them if there's proof."
