Sydney FC keen on Figo

The 36-year-old has retired from professional football but Sydnet FC Football Manager Dave Mason believes the former Barcelona, Real Madrid and Inter star would be perfect for the club.

“Obviously someone of that stature is exactly the sort of guest player you’d want, but the timing wasn’t right,” Mason told the Sydney Morning Herald.

“If he changes his mind and wants to come out sooner rather than later, then we’d definitely consider it.

“Our position on a guest player remains the same – if we can get someone in the attacking third, with the right sort of CV, then we are keen to do it.”
