Alessandro del Piero's Australian adventure with Sydney began last week when he was finally unveiled by his new club, and now the Italian has had his first training session with his team-mates.
Former Juventus star Del Piero has also been handed the captain's armband, although Sydney coach Ian Crook has already brushed off its importance.
“I know most of the others sports in Australia have the captaincy as a huge thing, but it isn’t really the same in our game,” Crook told The Australian.
“Our captains toss the coin and that’s pretty much it. It is the club captain that you class as really important."
Romford-born Crook played for Tottenham Hotspur between 1980 and 1986 but has predominantly been based in Australia since 1998.
Juve icon Del Piero, 37, left the Bianconeri in the summer after 705 appearances and 289 goals.
