Sydney’s 196-cm central striker is smashing it in the Hyundai A-League right now. With 12 goals so far this season Janko now leads the race for the Golden Boot ahead of Phoenix’s Nathan Burns on 11. The Sky Blue marquee man, dubbed by some the “Austrian Ibrahimovic” is leading the charge as a revitalised Sydney FC eye a top-two finish.
Ironically Janko’s Austria is in the same group as Ibrahimovic’s Sweden for Euro 2016 qualifiers. But more about that later.
Janko’s exceptional brace against in the derby last Saturday night was his eighth goal in five matches.
