Maybe the time has arrived to lay-off Alessandro Del Piero.The Juventus captain has been a much-maligned figure in recent times due to his pig-headed attitude of not agreeing with the general consensus that, at 33, he is over the hill and should call it a day.In fact, he reminds me of Tom Cruise: much smaller in stature when you get up beside him but a massive self-regard of his own worth.Having stood next to him on a few occasions I can certainly vouch for the former and after overtaking the legendary Gaetano Scirea’s club record of 552 appearances few can argue that he deserves to crow a little.In fact, Alex is getting very good at knocking over records for the Old Lady, having taken his all-time goalscoring-tally with the Turin club to 233, following his brace in the dramatic 3-2 defeat to Palermo on Sunday evening.However, all his good work was undone thanks, in part, to three wonderful goals by the hosts, two of which came from Amauri Carvalho de Oliveira, who could well be lining up alongside Del Piero next season.

As that vastly underrated football pundit Lenny Kravitz used to say, it ain’t over till it’s over. But, after the first legs of last night’s UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, it is very nearly over for two teams and Barcelona and Manchester United seem destined to clash in the semi-finals.
