“However, his presence is fundamental: Del Piero is always a danger for the opponents, but also a help for those who play close to him.”
He added, on the league standings: “I will look at the standings only on the 22nd of December; I will make a point before the holidays break. And anyway even then there will still be many matches missing, even though I do count the points.”
