The former Italy international has spent most of the season warming the bench but coach Antonio Conte had told the forward that he would start at the Ennio TardiniJuventus striker Alessandro Del Piero has bemoaned his misfortune after being finally included in the Bianconeri's starting line-up only to see Tuesday's clash with Parma postponed.
The 37-year-old has spent most of the season warming the bench but Juve coach Antonio Conte had told the forward that he would start at the Ennio Tardini.
However, the game was then called off because of adverse weather conditions, much to the disappointment of Del Piero.
“Damn it, it had to be tonight when I was in the starting XI,” he wrote on Twitter. “I'll tell Conte he'll have to pick me when it is replayed!"
Del Piero’s team-mate Gianlugi Buffon could also see the funny side of the last-minute cancellation.
"Well, at least I didn't concede a goal tonight," the goalkeeper joked on his Twitter page.
Juventus currently lead Serie A by a single point but they will be displaced at the summit if AC Milan get anything out of their clash with Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico on Wednesday.
