SYDNEY, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) -- Coach of Sydney Football Club (FC) Frank Farina has the confidence in captain Alessandro Del Piero, saying rumors about the Italian star looking to leave the A-League don't bother him, local media reported on Friday.
There have been widespread speculations that Del Piero would leave the club by the end of the January transfer window and the 39-year-old Italian has recently been targeted by Thai Premier League side PTT Rayong.
Early this month, it was rumored that Del Piero accepted a lucrative offer from David Beckham's former club, LA Galaxy.
Farina said on Friday that the Thai club was most probably an older rumor and Del Piero is committed to Sydney FC.
"We're in a situation where we're still very much in the fight and close to everything so his focus is on Sydney FC at the moment, " he told reporters in Sydney.
"I'm not worried at the moment and I hope there's no need to ( be)."
