Who is the Italian Ironman?

Born Nov. 9, 1974, in Conegliano, I left home at the age of 16 to start my pro career with Pavoda of the Italian Serie B, in 1993 was traded to Juventus and have been there ever since. During my career, the team has won 7 Italian championships, 4 Italian Super cups and one European Super Cup. As Captain and All-time top scorer for Juventus FC I was also a 2006 FIFA World Cup winner.

Answer, Alessandro Del Piero, definitely the Ironman of Italian football. Del Piero netted a hat trick against hosts Atalanta on Sunday and the addition to the Juventus striker’s tally has moved him to third on the season’s top goalscorer table.

Of course it only confirms what I’ve been saying for weeks, Del Piero is the most in form goalscorer in Serie A and possibly all Europe. The prolific Del Piero with 17 league goals is having his best season in a decade and with four games to go could break his best ever season of 21 goals set in the 1997-98 season.
