Juventus icon Del Piero in no rush to sign new Sydney deal

Alessandro Del Piero says he is not getting too carried away with contract negotiations regarding a new Sydney FC deal.

The Italian striker has made it known that he is keen to remain with the Sky Blues for at least a second season but he admits he would rather focus on getting the team off the bottom of the A-League ladder than signing a new deal.

"I have spent a really good time here," he told reporters.

"We have time to discuss that but at the moment the best thing for me, the club, the players and everyone is to concentrate on the games.

"We have to worry about this next period because it's very difficult for us and we have to put all our energy, mental and physical, into it.

"I'm not worried about other things. I'm really enjoying it ... but now have to win a couple more games for more enjoyment."

He added: "Everything is clear for me and the club.

"We can do it earlier than what we think but the contract is not a stress for me.

"I'm really happy to be here. I want to put all my knowledge and heart into this at the moment and not to talk about (a new deal)."
