Sydney wants Del Piero to stay

Sydney wants Del Piero to stay

The Italian is likely to extend the deal with the Australian side.

Stefano Del Piero , brother and manager of the player Alessandro Del Piero, will start discussing a new contract with the club this week. The forward’s performance in Sydney is hard to overestimate as Il Pinturrichio netted 11 times this season and became the league’s top scorer.

The legendary striker was linked with Brazilian side Flamengo, but the Sydney put all efforts in order to retain the forward’s services.

The clubs represantatives insisted that former Italian international would not leave the side.

”Stefano rang me from Italy to confirm that the reports about Flamengo were not true and that Alessandro will only negotiate with Sydney because he would love to stay on for another season,” Sydney FC official Tony Pignata claimed.

”We want him to stay, he wants to play here and the only thing we need to sort out is a few small details regarding some marketing stuff, ” underlined Pignata.
