PICS: Sydney all smiles again...

Sydney FC faced the cameras at training today after five days of crisis that saw the club suffer both a player and fan revolt.

Today though coach Frank Farina managed to raise a smile as he put his squad through their paces at Allianz Stadium ahead of the weekend's clash with Perth Glory.

Nick Carle - who has been at the centre of the storm over his banishment to the youth squad training sessions, along with Matt Thompson - was not training with the squad, instead running off an apparent injury by doing laps.

However Thompson was part of the main group as the squad attempts to re-unite in time to face Glory. However despite Farina's grin, others in the team looked more grim - especially Alessandro del Piero. Pics by Getty Images.
