Juventus coach Ranieri: I'll take care of Del Piero

Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri admits Alessandro del Piero is a crucial part of his plans this season.

"Alessandro is an important player for us because he can change a game in our favour in a moment," said Ranieri. "I know I must protect him.

"He will not be able to play every game because he is no longer a child. Therefore, I prefer to play Del Piero when I can as a starter."
