Alessandro Del Piero cannot wait for Juventus' "devastating" season to be over.

Juve lost 3-2 in their final home game against Parma yesterday.

The Turin side will end the campaign in seventh place meaning they will have to go through the qualifying rounds of the Europa League next term.

"We are the first to be disappointed," said Del Piero on the club's official website,

"Many of our mistakes are down to frustration and nerves.

"The game against Parma was just another reflection of our devastating campaign.

"A lot of things have happened to us this season, including fans' protests in our recent home games.

"We will have to show much more determination this summer and perhaps have better fortune, something which we have lacked this season.

"Hopefully with good results we will win our fans back."

Juventus have won three of their last 10 games and end the season at third-placed AC Milan on Sunday.

The game at the San Siro will be Alberto Zaccheroni's last at the helm of Juventus.
