Italian Serie A - Alessandro Del Piero is a legend in Italian football

Alessandro Del Piero is a talented striker. Because of his good performance he has evolved into one of the most important and renowned Italian soccer players.

Del Piero took his first steps in professional football in 1991 in Padova Calcio in the Italian Serie B. He remained there until 1993 when he was transferred to Juventus FC in Serie A.

In his first season with Juve, Alessandro alternated his competition among the junior team. That season he went on to score five goals in fourteen matches, including taking action in the UEFA Cup 1993-94.

From next season on, Alessandro becomes a fundamental part of Juventus. From 1994 to 1998, the collaboration of Alex takes Juventus to capture three Serie A titles, a Coppa Italia, an Italian Supercup, a UEFA Champions League trophy, a UEFA Super Cup and an Intercontinental Cup.

During the 1998-99 season, a serious left knee injury leaves Del Piero out of competition for nine months. During that period, and after a complex negotiation, Alessandro renewed his contract with the Bianconeri until 2004.

The striker returned to the professional circuit the next season. Although he said he was fully recovered, the player didn't shine throughout the season. He only scored 9 goals in 34 games. During the 2000-01 season, he was not able to excel and finished with 9 goals in 25 games.

Alessandro found his best form in the 2001-02 season and took Juventus back to the winning path. From there on, Del Piero has helped La Vecchia Signora add four Scudetti, two Italian Supercup and the Serie B championship (2006-07) to its record.

His good performance is also reflected with the Italian National Team, whit which he has been playing since 1995. With Italy he has scored 27 goals and has participated in 91 international matches. His participation in the 2006 World Cup was key in Italy's win.

Among his many individual accomplishments, Del Piero has won several awards such as top scorer of the UEFA Champions League (1997-1998), Italian Footballer of the Year (1998-2008), top scorer in Serie A (2007-2008) and three ESM Team of the Year (1995-96, 1996-97, 1997-98), among others.

Del Piero has gone so far as to overcame Giampiero Boniperti records, one of the legendary players of Juventus. This was marked last weekend when Alex played, against AC Milan, meet # 648 wearing the Juventus jersey. In this meeting, which ended 2-1 in favor of the bianconeris, the Italian star hit a new record by scoring his 179th goal in Serie A.

Alessandro Del Piero, is a player who has known how to gain acceptance from teammates and fans. This is one of the important points that Luigi Del Neri, the Juventus coach, has taken into account to keep the captain Del Piero within their work plans.


Formula One - McLaren and Ferrari United As One

The former arch rivals have decided to have a close working and professional relationship to show the powers that be of Formula One of their united stand as the racing teams led by the two rivals formed a group that shall look after the teams' interests. The Formula One Teams Association (FOTA) was set up to represent the teams in negotiations with the governing FIA (International Automobile Federation) and commercial head honcho Bernie Ecclestone. Fota are headed by Ferrari president and Ecclestone critic Luca de Montezemelo.

McLaren top executive Ron Dennis decribed the two teams ties as profound and admitted that he did not foresee the rivals eventually joining hands. Ferrari spokesman Luca Colajanni visited McLaren's Woking factory to meet the staff and Dennis. I guess with this newly formed relationship, it was but natural that executives from each side visit each others' headquarters.

The two teams turbulent past reached its climax two years ago when Ferrari accused McLaren of possessing important technical data of its cars. McLaren was fined $100 million and stripped of all its constructors' points. Not satisfied, Ferrari took legal action against McLaren with Dennis and other top officers interrogated by Italian police. Ferrari dropped all action though when McLaren issued an apology.

This season, FIA head Max Mosely has implemented new rules in Formula One, shaking up its present structure with the primary goal of cutting operational costs, perhaps standardizing engines. For its part, FOTA will be responsible for all the teams' interests. It shall provide the voice for all the teams.

All the teams do agree that the new rules may have provided each and eveyone significant savings in operatinal costs not only in this season but the future as well, FOTA are negotiating that the teams shall have a greater share in the commercial revenues than what they have at the moment which is peg at 50%.

Montezemelo said that Dennis, who shall concentrate on FOTA after divesting himself of the day-to-day operations of the McLaren Racing Team, is a first-class person with a first-class team. He further added that Formula One needed great competition on the track and great unity off the track.

Formula One teams found it necessary to form a group after the financial crisis hit most of the major economies. It also affected major teams like Honda as they placed their team up for sale. The radical changes in the rules have been approved first by FOTA before it was actually implemented for this season. FOTA intends to keep the teams work together for the advancement of Formula One as they continuously seek ways and innovative ideas that shall improve the sport. They also would like to address the issues confronting men nowadays like making the cars more affordable and environment friendly.

I just hope that Ferrari and McLaren do keep their partnership lasting. For the sake of the other teams.
