Wanderers captain departs to Malaysia

Western Sydney Wanderers captain Robert Cornthwaite has been released from the club to join Malaysian side Perak TBG.

It is the latest change in the Wanderers revolution under new manager Josep Gombau, with the 32-year-old departing after 29 games across two years for Western Sydney.

The centre-back started 11 A-League games this season, having previously played for Adelaide United as well as numerous Asian clubs.

Jumpei Kusukami and Jacob Melling were also released by Gombau earlier this month, as he aims to turn around the fortunes of the club.

The Wanderers currently sit 6th on the A-League table, a whopping 20 points behind their cross-town rivals Sydney F.C, in what has been a slightly underwhelming campaign to date.

Gombau has a solid history in the A-League however, winning the FFA Cup with Adelaide United in 2014, and will be confident of transforming Western Sydney into a juggernaut once more.
