Parma playmaker Sebastian Giovinco has hit out at Juventus.
And he has blamed Alessandro Del Piero for his less than perfect time in Turin as his career foundered.
His time with La Vecchia Signora was ephemeral. Hopes were met with hindrance as he never played, and ultimately he was forced to leave in the summer.
"Did Del Piero call me during my injury? No. He never called me," Giovinco told Il Corriere dello Sport.
"In any case, when I was at Juventus he never used to call me.
"He has never said anything on me. Was there tension between me and him? Maybe he never liked me."
To address the problem, Giovinco thought it was best to move to Parma and construct his own legacy at the Ennio Tardini.
He has recovered from a downward spiral at Juventus to reshape his identity with the Ducali.
"I am getting back to my best form. It was important to come back against Roma. It gave me good signs. I have a good relationship with the coach too," he added.
"Am I thinking of Juventus? No. Zero. My present is Parma and I want to think about this. The rest doesn't count."
