Italian legend Alessandro del Piero has said that he is gradually coming to grips with football in Australia's A-League.
The 37-year-old join Sydney FC on a two-year deal last month after his contract with Juventus ran out in the summer.
"I'm not 100% [fit] definitely," he said. "But I'm feeling good because I'm training every day and this is important.
"After five weeks, I think I'm happy to be in this condition and hope to do my best in two or three weeks.
"I have to do my best [against the physical nature of the Australian game]. I'm not big so I have to do something else, but I have time in training to understand what is best for the team."
Sydney will take on Perth Glory at the Olympic Stadium on Sunday.
