Alessandro Del Piero to Choose Between Japan, MLS

American MLS could possibly welcome an authentic living legend of the soccer world during the course of this year. It involves no other than former Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero, who might be already ending his adventure in Australia as Sidney FC, his current club, does not seem to be wanting to renew his contract.

Fortunately for every single soccer fan in the world, the 39-year-old doesn’t want anything to know about retirement yet, despite having already said goodbye to the competitive European elite in 2012. For this reason, he would find MLS as a very suitable option, especially for the appeal of the American lifestyle, in which also his kids could continue to speak English on a daily basis.

Other than MLS, moreover, the second alternative for Del Piero’s future is the J.League Division 1 of Japan. More than its lifestyle, what makes this country a great option is precisely the sense of admiration its fans have for the 2006 World Cup winner. As a matter of fact, it is an authentic feeling of love that goes beyond a simple sense of fanaticism to a professional player.

Whether it will be the United States and Japan, Del Piero will for sure be ready to dominate in another continent, after having written history in Europe and, later on, been an idol in Australia. Not in vain, he already conquered the world twice, in 1996 and 2006.
