Del Piero not at Sydney to wind down

Alessandro Del Piero insists he has not moved to Sydney FC to take early retirment and says he is targeting trophies after touching down in Australia.

• Brooks: New era for A-League

Del Piero, 37, has signed a two-year deal with the A-League side and arrived at Sydney airport to a rousing welcome on Sunday morning.

The assembled crowd, some of whom had been waiting since 0530 local time, chanted Del Piero's name right up until he emerged just before midday.

Del Piero, who followed his wife and three young children into the bedlam, took his time as he signed autographs and got acquainted with the fans of his new club.

Smiling all the way through the airport and sporting a Sydney FC scarf, the forward paused for a quick chat with the media before being whisked away.

"I am not here for the end of my career, I am here for the start of my new career,'' Del Piero said. "I want to win some [trophies]. I play to win.''
