Brosque pens new Sydney deal
Sydney FC forward Alex Brosque has committed his future to the club by signing a new three-year contract. The 26-year-old joined the reigning A-League champions' senior squad in 2006 after progressing through the junior ranks, and has since made over 90 appearances for the club, scoring 24 goals.
"I am really happy to have my future decided," he said. "I will have been at the club for eight years when this new deal finishes, which is good because Sydney is my home town, all of my family are here, and having them around all the time is just great.
"Sydney FC is a great club. We have a very good team and obviously we want to continue on from what we achieved last season. Personally, I have worked really hard to get where I am and Sydney is where I want to be.
"The club indicated to me very early on that they wanted me to stay, which made me feel good. The club has great plans and vision for the future, and I want to be a part of that.
"We have great facilities, great coaching and support staff and I have just become a dad, so keeping everything the same was important."
Brosque was also proud to be named vice-captain for the upcoming campaign. "It's a real honour," he said.
"There have been some amazing players who have led the club, like Steve Corica, so I have some big shoes to fill, but it is very exciting at the same time."
