Juventus icon Del Piero: I was contacted by Liverpool before Sydney move

Alessandro Del Piero has revealed that Liverpool showed interest in him prior to his move to Sydney FC.

The former Juventus star signed with the A-League club on Wednesday and has admitted his surprise that the Reds came in with late transfer window interest.

"They were one of the clubs, amongst the non-Italian sides [interested], and I was surprised to be contacted by them," he said regarding the Liverpool interest at his first Sydney press conference.

Del Piero has signed a two-year deal with the Sky Blues believed to be worth around £1.6million per season.
