Sydney complete marquee signing of Del Piero

Sydney FC have completed the high-profile signing of former Italy international Alessandro Del Piero, reports BBC News. The 37-year-old forward has signed a two-year deal with the A-League club.

Del Piero left Italian champions Juventus in the summer after making more than 700 appearances for the Turin side.

He had recently been linked with a move to Liverpool and Southampton in the Premier League before deciding to sign for the A League outfit.

"I am extremely happy to be joining Sydney FC," said Del Piero.

"This is a very big moment for me because I want to continue my career in a new part of the world where I can make a major contribution and help grow the game I love."
