Palmeiras shutdown Del Piero talk

Palmeiras insist they're not interested in Juventus legend Alessandro del Piero.

Del Piero is now playing in Australia for Sydney FC.

"An agent asked me if I was interested in Del Piero, but to be honest I didn't think about it for long," revealed Palmeiras director Jose Carlos Brunoro.

"I think it would be very complicated, because we are talking about a foreign player who is 38 years old, so we are not interested.

"Players like Del Piero or Francesco Totti would be exceptional from a marketing point of view, but we cannot sign players just for the marketing."
