Juventus captain Alessandro del Piero feels staying with the club when relegated has been justified after winning the title.

Del Piero was one of the veterans who accepted the drop down into Serie B in 2006 after Calciopoli.

“I remember everything from our Serie B season, which was wonderful for me and the others who experienced it, even if it started out as traumatic. This is why for me and the others like Gigi Buffon, Claudio Marchisio, etc. who were there have a very special sensation with this title.

“I lived this season to the full and will celebrate it completely. The important thing is to win, so whether it is as a protagonist or not makes little difference. Of course I can say that now as a winner tonight!”
