Juventus coach Del Neri: Del Piero remains our inspiration

Juventus coach Gigi del Neri admits skipper Alessandro del Piero remains their main inspiration.

Del Piero celebrated his birthday today and has been practically ever present under Del Neri so far this season.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday's match against Brescia, he said: "I have still not seen Alex today, but I have sent him my wishes.

"Del Piero, Krasic or Del Neri haven't made the different in this period. Juventus have done it all.

"But for us Alex is a reference point. If he maintains this energy, this enthusiasm, he can still play at the highest level."
