Del Piero open to future Juventus role

Alessandro del Piero is keen to return to Juventus.

The veteran's time in Australia with Sydney FC is coming to an end.

"Alessandro has never made any monetary demands from Sydney," Stefano Del Piero, his brother and agent, told

"When he decided to go to play in Australia it was because he liked the project and the intention of it to help develop football in the country.

"At the moment he is in good shape and more than anything he is enjoying himself on the pitch.

"If it's not possible for him to continue in Sydney, we would then be willing to assess other offers that came our way.

"Alex spent 19 years at Juve and he will always support the club, wherever he goes.

"He would be willing to accept any conditions from the club, everyone knows that.

"At the moment we have not had any contact from the club.

"Everything would have to be started by them.

"Some things in life happen when you least expect them, so never say never."
