Del Piero to meet former club Juventus for first time in friendly with A-League All Stars

  • Print

SYDNEY - Alessandro Del Piero will play against former club Juventus for the first time when he joins an A-League All Stars side for a friendly against the Serie A champion in August.

Del Piero, who is now playing for Australian A-League side Sydney FC, spent 19 years with Juventus — including 11 seasons as captain — where the former Italy star scored 290 goals in 705 matches.

Football Federation Australia chief David Gallop said Tuesday that "to have a club of the calibre of Juventus FC come to Sydney is a massive coup for football in Australia."

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli said last year he planned to bring a full-strength squad to Sydney.
