Del Piero says he’s happy in Sydney

Former Juventus star Alessandro Del Piero says he has no plans

to leave Sydney FC during the A-League season.

The 39-year-old Del Piero said Friday ”I’m happy here … I

don’t have other thoughts about other teams at the moment” when

asked to comment on reports that he could leave the side during the

January transfer window.

He added ”for me the future is here until the end of the

season, and this for me is only rumors.”

Talk of dissatisfaction began after Sydney’s 2-0 win over

Newcastle last month when he substituted himself before halftime,

earning a yellow card.

Del Piero has scored three goals in seven appearances and has

missed two matches due to hamstring and calf soreness.
