Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero has reaffirmed his commitment to stay with the Bianconeri.
Speculation has grown over the last few months that the striker could leave the club in the summer but after his strong performance in Italy's international friendly with Germany, the player has insisted he has no intention to leave.
Del Piero knows that he is not getting any younger and that everyone has to take their turn on the bench if the team is to remain fresh.
"I will stay here," said Del Piero. "It is always a challenge and each season is different.
"Being on the bench is not a problem, we have to rotate.
"We are still involved in lots of competitions and there's the World Cup too so we need to play with a competitive team every game."
