Del Piero, 32, is an emblematic figure of the Turin club he joined in 1993 from Padova.

However, his contract talks have stalled and Secco admits that the future of the World Cup winner is not yet secure.

Secco told Sky: "It's not necessary to say what Del Piero means for Juventus.

"There is the risk of losing him but we are doing all we can to reach an agreement. The content remains a private matter for the club but I can say that we are all working towards an agreement and all parties are committed to that end."
