Del Piero preparing for Juventus departure

Alessandro del Piero is ready for his Juventus farewell game tonight in the Coppa Italia final.

Juve face Napoli in what will be Del Piero's last competitive match for the club.

"I don't know what I will think right before stepping on to the field. I know what I'll think this evening and throughout tomorrow," he said in his press conference.

"I will try to find the right concentration, a clear head and isolate myself as much as possible from what is around this magnificent adventure. Basically I'll try to focus on the Cup and everything one savours on days like this.

"I haven't tried to picture what it will be like. Everything that has happened up until today has been immensely fantastic, indescribable and I hope tomorrow along with my teammates to write another winning page in the history books.

"I will admit this week, well the last few weeks and even months, have been completely different. However, I can confirm that within me I am focused only on achieving victory. We've done it in Serie A and now we have this other great opportunity.

"I don't want to distract attention from what is this moment, this Final, to be played and experienced in full. I think that is the best thing to do before going into the future. It's an attitude us young people can embrace."
