Del Piero signing is A-League's biggest coup


Del Piero signing is A-League's biggest coup


Two-time A-League champion Sydney FC has pulled off the biggest transfer coup in the competition's eight-year history, signing former Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero.

The 37-year-old has signed a two-year deal worth $A2 million per season, making him the highest paid player in any of Australia's four domestic football codes.

Sydney FC officials are hoping Del Piero's presence will double gates at the Sydney Football Stadium, where the Sky Blues kick off their home campaign against the Newcastle Jets on October 13.
