during the 2017 A-League Grand Final match between Sydney FC and the Melbourne Victory at Allianz Stadium on May 7, 2017 in Sydney, Australia.

Sydney FC have confirmed club captain Alex Brosque has re-signed with the club for a further season.

Brosque will remain as captain of the Sky Blues as they look to defend their title in 2017/18.

Brosque had arguably his best season for the club at the ripe-old age of 33, scoring 11 goals and having a hand in several others, racking up five assists in the league’s most prolific attack.

The Sky Blues leader was thrilled to have extended his stay at the club in his second stint at the club.

“I’m very happy to be staying on for another year,” Brosque said.

“After the incredible highs of the season just gone we want to carry that on into next year and have another successful season.

“I believe we’ll be even better next year, retaining the core of the squad, and I’m looking forward to season 2017/18 getting underway.”

Premiership-winning coach Graham Arnold said it was a no-brainer to keep the captain at the club.

“Brosquey is a major part of everything we do at the club, not just on the field but off it as well,” Arnold said.

“He’s a leader and mentor for both the young and experienced players, he brings the dressing room together and I expect him to continue to live up to the standards bestowed upon him as Captain in season 2017/18.

“It’s a pleasure to have Brosque at the club and long may our form continue in the new season.”

Brosque will lead out the Sky Blues in their clash against EPL giants Liverpool tomorrow night at ANZ Stadium before taking a well-earned break.
