Vincenzo Iaquinta insists there's no rift between himself and Juventus teammate Alessandro Del Piero.

Iaquinta is battling Del Piero for a first team place for club and country, but insists: "I do not want people to think there is a competition between Del Piero and I.

"There are no problems between us. At Juve we are a united squad and know this is the right road to follow."
