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. When Juventus was relegated to the Italian Serie B due to a match-fixing scandal for the 2006-07 season, known as the Calciopoli, I decided to stay with the Bianconeri, and I’m currently the highest earning Italian Player [1] ,

Who am I ?

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, as Del Piero is the most in form goalscorer in Serie A and possibly all Europe. The prolific Del Piero with 18 league goals is so hot right now he 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.
