More than a goal “alla Del Piero”

More than that goal in Tokyo

More than my tears

More than that goal in Bari

More than a back-heel volley goal in the derby

More than a goal for l’Avvocato

More than the tongue-out celebration against Inter

More than the assist to David

More than goal #187

More than the goal against Germany

More than Berlin

More than the goal against Frosinone

More than the capocannoniere title in Serie B

More than the capocannoniere title in Serie A

More than the standing ovation at the Bernabéu

More than 704 matches wearing the same shirt

More than 289 goals

More than a Scudetto-meaning free kick

More than the goal against Atalanta

More than any record

More than jersey #10 with the name ‘Del Piero’

More than the captain’s armband

 

More than all this, more than anything…

There’s the gift you have given me these 19 years.

 

I’m happy that you have smiled, cheered, cried, sung, shouted for me and with me.

No color will ever be brighter for me than Black & White.

You’ve made my dream come true. More than any other thing, today I can only say: THANK YOU.

 

Always by your side

 

Alessandro
