Juventus chief Secco: Del Piero contract talks on course

Juventus are confident Alessandro del Piero will sign his new contract.

"We have made a step forward meeting Del Piero and his representatives," assured director of sport Alessio Secco.

"Of course, I am convinced that to reach a definitive agreement we need another encounter."

The matter is causing tension among the fans as well as the squad, as Del Piero stuck with Juve during their demotion to Serie B and is considered a hero among the Ultras.

"There were no particular problems. Every club has to make its plans in the best possible way, taking into account its possibilities," added Secco.
