Sydney FC Chair Hopes To Make 'Long-Term' Commitment With Del Piero
Published December 19, 2012
MARINERS AMBITIONS: In Sydney, Sebastian Hassett reported "the dream" of A-League Central Coast Mariners Owner Peter Turnbull is to pair Del Piero and David Beckham for its Asian Champions League tour. Having seen the interest generated by Del Piero with Sydney, and with Beckham's appeal "unmatched in the world game," the Mariners are "considering signing the duo" for its Asian Champions League campaign. If Turnbull is successful, Beckham would join the Mariners for the second half of the A-League season, and remain there for the ACL campaign. Del Piero would play out the year at Sydney before coming to the Mariners (SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, 12/19).
