Rome, February 21 - Former Italy forward Alessandro
Del Piero announced on Thursday that he has taken up an option
to extend his contract with Sydney FC by a year.
"Sydney once again. Now it's official, I have renewed my
contract with Sydney FC for one more year," Del Piero, who moved
to the Australian club last year after a glorious 19-year stint
at Juventus, said on his website.
"That's what I wanted, and that's what the club wanted. My
choice, our choice".
The 38-year-old, who helped Italy win the 2006 World Cup,
has thrived in the Australian A-League, scoring 11 goals in 17
games for Sydney, who are fifth in the standings.
"I'm happy to stay in Australia, and my choice apart from
my football career includes also my life and my family," added
Del Piero.
"I just love being here, we all feel at home and really
welcomed by this extraordinary country.
"I said that this choice wasn't based only on football, but
it doesn't mean that football isn't in first place.
"I am a football player and a sportsman: it is my
profession and my passion.
"I feel that I still have a lot to give to my team and
that's the main reason I want to keep on playing, I want to give
my best, to face new challenges and to win".
