Del Piero on that Liverpool offer

TO celebrate our 100th issue, Alessandro Del Piero sat down with FourFourTwo Austrlalia to answer reader questions from around the globe in an exclusive one-one. And it is out now on news stands.

Readers quizzed the Italian legend on his time at Juve, playing alongside Totti, Lippi, World Cups and rock star mates plus lots more as you can imagine.

And Del Piero explained why he turned down an offer from Liverpool just before announcing his move to the Harbour City.

"Liverpool? That's a delicate question," he said. "When Liverpool's offer arrived I'd already said yes to Sydney, so it didn't seem right.

"So there was no need to really think about [the Heysel question]. But what happened at Heysel was terrible. My only hope is that never happens again to either Italian or English fans."
