Juventus legend and former Italy attacker Alessandro Del Piero spoke about his rapport with Francesco Totti.

The two footballers reflected on their own careers in an interview with Sky Sport.

“In those years, I didn’t experience the rivalry only with Totti, you experienced it every game because in our time there were so many champions around,” said the legendary Juve captain.

“More than rivalry, a complicity was created between us, we knew that we had different responsibilities as captains. We have always fought each other on the pitch, but my rivalry with Totti was always based on respect. Many have tried to put us in a position to clash heads, but in reality we always had a laugh and remained good friends.”
