Italian superstar Alessandro Del Piero has capped an impressive debut season in the A-League by being named Sydney FC's player of the year.

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.

He has been impressive on the pitch, scoring 14 goals, which also earned him the club's golden boot award at a ceremony on Tuesday.

The 38-year-old Italian, who spent 19 years at Juventus, scoring 208 goals in 513 appearances, joined Sydney last September.
