'Totti will not come to Sydney'

Sydney FC have assured it is “not possible” for Francesco Totti to join Alessandro Del Piero in the A-League.

There were reports that the Australians would make a bid for Roma legend Totti after snapping up Del Piero this summer.

“Totti? No, that’s not possible,” President Tony Pignata told news agency ANSA.

“I only said a word, but we cannot bring him here and we are not going to. Del Piero is destined to be a stand-alone case.

“We are very happy to have him here, not just those of us at Sydney FC, but everyone in Australia.”

This morning Del Piero scored the winning goal in the Sydney derby against Wanderers.
