CANBERRA, April 28 (Xinhua) -- Sydney FC soccer club confirmed on Monday that Alessandro Del Piero would leave the A-league club after both parties failing to agree to a new contract.

The Italian striker and Sydney FC had been in discussions for months about extending Del Piero's two-season stay in Australia, but Sydney FC chairman Scott Barlow said the 39-year-old player had decided to end his time with the team.

The former Juventus great, the biggest signing in Australia's domestic league history, has played a major role in increasing attendances, television audiences and media interest in the domestic A-League.

The Italian great spent 19 years at Juventus, scoring 208 goals in 513 appearances before joining the A-League.
