Del Piero could be future Juventus president

Juventus legend Giampiero Boniperti believes Alessandro Del Piero would be perfect as a future president at the Old Lady.

Del Piero will equal Boniperti’s league appearance record of 444 games, when Juventus face Livorno tonight.

“Del Piero is a golden boy and he has everything to go forward as a director at the club,” Boniperti told Tuttosport.

“I can see him as being the future president of Juventus and I would be happy if he took that role.”

It was Boniperti who signed Del Piero as a youth team product from Padova in 1993.

“I remember going to see him play and I saw he was made of champion material. I was lucky in my choice, and I am happy for him today.”
