Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero admits the club's announcement that he wouldn't be getting a new deal took him by surprise.
Del Piero was asked of his reaction to Andrea Agnelli's announcement at a club shareholders meeting in October that this would be the No 10's last term with the club.
He told Vanity Fair: "It surprised me. But a captain should never forget his duties and what he represents. Juventus has taken the utmost to try to win the League and Coppa Italia.
"We do not need controversy, which, moreover, has never been a part of my career.
"From June 30 I will be without a contract. I cannot imagine my future, it is a huge change and it scares me a little, because it will be like leaving home again.
"But I live life as I did when I was a kid, like a video game - there will be another level to overcome."
