Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero is surprised that he's left the club.

Del Piero admits he didn't expect to leave Juve.

"I'd be lying if I said I didn't expect a contract renewal with Juventus," he told CNN. "There had already been difficulties last year which had then been overcome.

"But I gave my all, and more, than what I had, so I am extremely happy. After that, everyone has to follow their own destiny and mine is taking me somewhere else. There is no bitterness, at least as far as I am concerned.

"The USA is a unique nation where I have always enjoyed myself on vacation. I haven't got a new club yet, but we'll see if it is there or elsewhere. I just want to find the right place to continue playing football for one, two, three, or even five years."
