Sydney FC marquee player Alessandro Del Piero has issued a rallying call to his teammates, admitting the time for positive action is now, if the club want to make an impact on the A-League this season.
The Sky Blues face a crucial run of games against three of the A-League-s top five in the next 10 days and the striker knows the team has to get it right.
“It-s not too late but the time is rolling and that-s why we have to move quicker and as soon as possible to make points in the standings,” he said.
“The next three games are against some of the top teams in the league and we have to improve a lot.
“Two of them are away and that-s a big problem, but if we are looking for a good position at the end of the season then we have to do a good job in these three matches.”
The Italian superstar is also not worried about media speculation over his future at the club, insisting he is happy at Sydney and everything will be worked out.
“Everything is clear between me and the club. It-s not a stress for me,” said the World Cup winner.
“I-m really happy to be here and we have time for discussions but at the moment the best thing for me, for the club and for my teammates is concentrating on the games.
“It-s going to be difficult for us and we have to put all our energy, mental and physical [into them] not about other things.
“I really enjoy it here and now I have to win a couple of games to get more enjoyment.”
