Football Talk - Del Piero in no hurry to sign new deal - 11/10/10
Alessandro Del Piero insists he is not concerned about his contract situation at Juventus. The Juve icon has been linked with a move to America as his current contract expires next summer and as yet no new deal has been agreed.
But 35-year-old Del Piero says he is not thinking too far ahead at the moment. "In all honesty, I am relaxed about the whole issue of my contract and my future," wrote Del Piero in a Facebook chat session with his fans. "I have no intention of running away from this issue, but really at this moment my future is only the next game. I want to win.
"As for the rest, we need to leave time for things to mature, without rushing them. I haven't thought of what to do after I retire, as I am still too caught up in the pitch."
The 2006 World Cup winner also revealed he would never rule out a possible return to the national side despite falling out of favour in recent years. "I'd never say no to the national team. It's an ambition matter."
