Sydney:

Italian superstar Alessandro Del Piero denied rumours Friday that he was unhappy at Sydney FC and wanted out, insisting he had no plans to leave.

The former Juventus great, the biggest signing in Australia's domestic league history, has played a major role in increasing attendances, television audiences and media interest in the domestic A-League.

Now in his second season at Sydney, he denied he was looking to move in the upcoming January transfer window.

"I'm happy here," the 39-year-old World Cup winner told reporters.

"I'm focused about this season with Sydney and I don't have other thoughts about other teams at the moment.

"For me the future is here until the end of the season, and this for me is only rumours."

Reports have suggested tension at the club, which has apparently had trouble convincing Del Piero to attend events that are standard for other A-League footballers, such as school clinics, community visits and sponsor events.
