Juventus No1 Buffon: Donadoni not out to humiliate Del Piero

Juventus goalkeeper Gigi Buffon insists Italy coach Roberto Donadoni hasn't wrote off the Azzurri career of teammate Alessandro del Piero.

Donadoni warned yesterday that "time was catching up" on Del Piero, but Buffon says: "His adventure with the national team will not end here. Donadoni hasn't said this and he wants to see Del Piero return. To show his true worth.

"Donadoni has never had an intention to humiliate him, whether that's by leaving him on the bench or in the stands."
