Sky Blues are in Italy for a six-match tour as they prepare for the 2013/14 A-League season.
Alessandro Del Piero was given a hero’s welcome by the town of Jesolo after Sydney FC touched down in Italy ahead of their six-match summer tour.
After holding training in front of 1,400 fans the day before Del Piero and his team-mates were introduced to 5,000 locals in the main piazza with the Juventus legend garnering the biggest reception.
And Del Piero is certain to be the star attraction again on Thursday when Sky Blues take on his first ever club, Padova.
