"Stuart is a very important part of the team so we are very happy about this news," coach Vitezslav Lavicka said.

"He has responded to what we asked of him and he has been playing good football."

Musialik, alongside the entire Sydney FC playing squad is currently enjoying a short break, before returning to training on Monday 4 January, 2010 in the lead up to their away match against Perth Glory on Sunday 10 January.
