Soccer: Ex-Juve forward Del Piero departs for Sydney


(ANSA) – Rome, September 14 – Ex-Juventus forward Alex Del
Piero departed Italy on Friday to begin a new stage in his
glorious career on the other side of the globe.
The 37-year-old former captain is to begin a two-year
contract with Sydney football club in Australia.
Del Piero, for many years considered one of Italy's most
talented players, had played with the Turin team for 19 years.
"I can't wait to start playing again," he said at Milan's
Malpensa airport. "In many respects for Juve this is a 'see you
soon' rather than a 'farewell'".
There is great excitement in Sydney surrounding the
forward's arrival – so much so that a home match against Perth
Glory in late October has been moved to the Olympic stadium in
anticipation of a high turnout.
The club reportedly paid over two million euros for Del
Piero – the biggest investment ever made in Australia for a
football player – in a move that should also improve the
fortunes of the beautiful game in a country that has
historically favoured the oval-shaped ball.
