Del Piero played his final Serie A match today, scoring a goal in the 3-1 victory over Atalanta and lifting the Scudetto trophy.
“It was an incredible moment,” he said of his lap of honour as tears flooded from people in the stands.
“My ties to the fans go beyond anything and I want to thank them. I am happy and proud today. It is an incredibly wonderful day.
“Of course there is also sadness, but it’s a moment to treasure, because I celebrated with the fans on the field and I cannot add anything more. I am truly proud.
“I am focusing on this because I don’t want to feel that sadness and I have to prepare for Sunday’s Coppa Italia Final against Napoli.”
