Alessandro Del Piero says he has “no regrets” about his Juve career and feels he is “ready to become a coach.”

Speaking to the Corriere dello Sport newspaper, the former Juve captain looked back at his Bianconeri career and his ambitions for the future.

“I will admit, I do now feel ready to become a Coach,” he told the Italian daily.

“It’s an intriguing option that I am now evaluating. If you’d asked me three years ago, I would’ve said no, but things are different now.

“This is such a complex job that allows you to experience football with a vision. I want to make it clear that I haven’t signed up for any course yet.

“I worked for a long time with three greats, so learned from Lippi, Capello and Ancelotti. I realised by working with them that a squad is guided with humility, intelligence and infinite patience.”

“My career at Juve was magical. Perhaps the most important shirts I kept are from the first victories, as those were special. Although now that I think about it, Serie B, the fall and the rebirth with the Scudetto were key moments too.

“In 2006 it would’ve been frankly difficult not to stay. I was the captain of Juventus, I was its number one fan. Juve had given me so much.

“John Elkann called and I said he could count on me. I didn’t think twice, nor do I have any regrets.”

Ale’ did eventually leave the club in 2012, but it was an emotional goodbye.

“It had been a very difficult year for me, as I played few games, but still scored some decisive goals. When I went off in the second half, I felt a lump in my throat.

“I can remember few words from that moment, but everything seemed to stop: opponents, the referee, my teammates.”
