Del Piero pulls out of Sydney FC friendly

Alessandro Del Piero has pulled out of Sydney FC's final friendly in Italy, against Reggio-Emilia on Wednesday, after failing to pass a fitness test following an injury knock.

Del Piero revealed earlier on Twitter he would not participate in the match, stating: "I'm sorry, but after my last control I was not given the ok for the match against Reggina. But I will still be at the stadium tonight."

The former Juventus great, who moved to the A-League last season, arrived in Reggio late on Tuesday night after being delayed by physio treatment but was met with a rapturous reception from waiting fans.
