Sydney FC midfielder Luke Brattan has signed a new contract to keep him at the club for the next two seasons.
Brattan won Sydney FC’s Player Of The Year Award when the Sky Blues became Championship and Premiership double winners in 2020.
He missed last season after sustaining an anterior cruciate ligament injury early in the campaign but will return for 2022-23 and 2023-24.
“I’m excited to get back playing for Sydney FC and I feel my next two seasons can be the best of my career,” said the 32-year old.
“I want to be part of that brilliant new Allianz Stadium and I can’t wait to walk out in our new home for the very first time in October.
“I’m working extremely hard to get back to fitness and things are going well.
“It’s a long road but I feel good, and I’m looking forward to being back on the pitch with the boys.”
Head Coach Steve Corica welcomed Brattan’s extended stay in Sky Blue and believes his presence will be important to a successful campaign.
“I think there’s no doubt we missed Luke last season as he’s a key player for us and one of the best midfielders in the country,” he said.
“His work rate, his passing, his never-say-die attitude and his leadership on and off the field are crucial components which have a positive impact for us.
“It’s great news to have him back on board and firing on all cylinders once again.”
The midfielder will continue to rehabilitate and recover under the guidance of the club’s medical staff during the off-season.
Brattan has played 58 games in Sky Blue in all competitions and has scored two goals for the club.
