The 39-year-old is expected to be confirmed as a player for the Delhi Dynamos franchise at some point this weekend and it is thought he will also become a brand ambassador for the league, says Sky Sports.

Del Piero has performed a similar ambassadorial role for the Australian A-League, where he scored 24 goals in 48 appearances during a two-year stint with Sydney FC.

Former Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ Robert Pires and Freddie Ljungberg will also play in the league, as will Spanish duo Luis Garcia and Josemi who won the Champions League in 2005 with Liverpool.
