Apparently rumors of him re-signing for another year,
i don't see why not, he has been nothing short of excellent every time he has played, if he wants another year he will get it I think, judging by his words he has no intention of slowing down

No way he beats Del Piero's record, right?
no if he retires at the end of this season.

I'm sorry I can't believe he's starting games like these. Games that really matter.

You just can't use the legend card and play important minutes when you don't deserve to.

For me, it wasn't really a great decision to bring him back and he ideally shouldn't be starting any games other than the Coppa Italia games.
