Juventus hitman Alessandro Del Piero has admitted that this campaign has been the hardest since former coach Marcello Lippi left the Bianconeri.
The Turin giants have seen Ciro Ferrara fired from his coaching post, replaced by current tactician Alberto Zaccheroni. On top of this, the Bianconeri were bundled out of the Champions League, and now the Europa League, at the hands of Fulham 4-1 this evening.
"It is definitely the toughest season since Lippi left Juventus," the 35-year-old declared to Corriere Dello Sport.
"I would have never thought that we were going to lose this evening.
"But the players must take all the responsibility at the moment, and not the coach," he concluded.
