Adrian Mierzejewski has retired from professional football after a 20 year career that took him from Poland to Asia and of course Australia.
Affectionally known as Adrian at his time Down Under, the one season he spent with the Sky Blues was an incredible one as he produced one of the greatest individual seasons ever seen in the league.
Across his 34 appearances for Sydney FC during the 2017/18 season, Mierzejewski set all competitions alight. The Pole made his debut in a 3-0 victory over Bankstown Berries in the FFA Cup where he scored from the spot in second half stoppage time.
During that competition, he would go on to lift the trophy and be awarded the Mark Viduka Medal for the best performance during the final.
He would win the hearts of many in Sky Blue with his performances in the Sydney Derby where across two matches he scored four goals against the Western rivals, with two goals being superb free-kicks with his trademark left foot.
His final goal in Sydney FC colours came against Suwon Bluewings in the AFC Asian Champions League.
During his highly impressive league campaign, Adrian lifted the Premiers Plate and won the Alex Tobin and Johnny Warren Medal.
He is widely regarded as one of the best in recent time to play for Sydney FC and won the hearts of many fans.
All the best in retirement Adrian and thank you for the memories.
