Del Piero (finally) Signs With Sydney FC

Well that was close. Thanks Tony Pignata (Sydney FC CEO) for nearly making me look like a totally gullible dick when I reported, on your good words, that Alessandro del Piero was a done deal! But you’re off my shit list because now del Piero signing has been confirmed and for a two year stint instead of one. Hallelujah!

The DL-P (as I’ll be referring to him as this season) was in high demand and had fielded more lucrative offers but in the end, it was the opportunity to become the face of the A League that was the kicker.
