After last night-s great win over the Melbourne Victory, Sydney FC has climbed to the top of the Hyundai A-League table and pole position in the chase for the Championship, but the club is also looking to the future and has taken a big step towards ensuring its long term success, this-week, with the re-signing of star midfielder, Alex Brosque.
Brosque was a player in demand and could-ve left the Harbour City to take up a larger offer elsewhere, but the 25-year-old is more than happy to stay in Sky Blue.
“It-s not always about the money I guess, there-s a lot of factors you-ve got to take into account before you sign a contract,” he said. “I think with the squad that we-ve got and the ambition that the club-s got, especially with new clubs coming in, I want to be involved in a club that-s already stable and is really going to challenge for honours in the next couple of years.”
The Sydney native has signed a new two year deal that will keep him with FC until at least April, 2011, and he hopes his off-contract team-mates will follow his lead.
“The group of boys that we-ve got, it-s a really good group, there-re no problems between any of us and it-s a real joy going to training every day,” Brosque explained. “I think Sydney-s done very well by first of all attracting the names that they-ve been able to bring this year, and if they can resign most of the players coming off contract we-re going to be a real force in the years to come. I think the signs look really good for the club.”
A minor hamstring problem has kept the international representative out of the action for the last fortnight but he could be in line to make his return when the Sky Blues host the Central Coast Mariners in a Hyundai A-League blockbuster, next Saturday night at the Sydney Football Stadium.
