According to Craig Forrest a former Canadian player; now a soccer analyst, said on Rogers Sportsnet that he thinks that Toronto FC will use their DP roster spot on Alessandro Del Piero.

Del Piero usually plays as a supporting-striker and occasionally between the midfield and the strikers, known in Italy as the “Trequartista” position. Although he is not very tall, Del Piero’s playing style is regarded by critics as creative in attacking, assisting many goals as well as scoring himself, as opposed to just “goal poaching.” His free-kick and penalty taking is also highly regarded. Del Piero has become famous over the years for scoring from a special ” Del Piero Zone”, approaching from the left flank and curling a precise lob into the far top corner of the goal.

In terms of goalscoring, Del Piero holds the all-time record at Juventus. On April 6th, 2008, Alessandro Del Piero became the all-time highest-capped Juventus player, ahead of Juve legend Gaetano Scirea. He is in sixth place in the UEFA Champions League all-time goalscorer records. Within the Italian national team, he is currently joint fourth with Roberto Baggio in the all-time scoring records.
