Juventus captain Alessandro del Piero admits their form slide has led to him having a not so happy Christmas.
Juve are in crisis as Serie A takes it's winter break.
Del Piero said: "I have to admit that I expected that these Christmas holidays were going to be more calm, but I really hope that these days of vacation will allow Juventus and I to change route.
"Anyway, I think that in these days it's better to go over what happens on a football field and think about our beloved.
"This is Christmas for me, the one that I use to spend in my hometown with my brother and my parents and the one that this year I will spend with my wife and my kids."
