No, I have nothing personal against Del Piero. He has been one of the my favorite players of all time. The first Juve jersey I bought has his name on it. I have said multiple times that I do not hate Del Piero, but it bothers me to see people praise Del Piero, then throw out harsh criticism at Ibrahimovic, even though the latter has played better so far. I criticise Del Piero harshly because it seems like I am one of the few that want a replacement for him because he can no longer help the team as he used to. In my love for the club, I want the best for Juve, and that includes calling for replacements that can give more to the club. Making harsh statements also calls people to argue back with me, which in turn gives people something to post about. However, I stick by my arguement that we must find a replacement for Del Piero.
