Sydney FC manager Frank Farina has dismissed reports of Alessandro Del Piero leaving the A-League club.
"Discussions haven't been held with Alessandro out of respect for what he wants to do," Farina said, per Angela Habashy at the Sydney Morning Herald. "But no, there's no decision been made what so ever."
Del Piero is not only a class act on the field, but he brings publicity to football, a minority sport in Australia.
He was inconclusive in his answer when asked in February if he was set to retire.
"Yes it is possible this maybe will be the final one but maybe not," Del Piero said, per the Guardian. "Now is not the moment for me to answer that."
