Alessandro Del Piero Agrees To Finalise Sydney FC Contract

Sydney FC Chairman Scott Barlow is proud to announce that Italian football legend Alessandro Del Piero has agreed to finalise details on a contract with the Sky Blues after rejecting all other offers.

Sydney FC Chief Executive Officer Tony Pignata will fly to Italy over the weekend to conclude the signing of the contract in what is the biggest signing in Australian sports history.

“This is huge for Sydney FC, huge for the A-League and huge for Australian football,” Barlow said. “We feel honoured that Alessandro has decided to play for Sydney FC and we share his excitement that a move to Sydney FC will create a lasting legacy for football in this country.

“I want to thank Tony Pignata and Lou Sticca for the outstanding work over the last few days in progressing discussions with Alessandro and look forward to Tony finalising the contract in Italy over the coming days.”
