Sydney FC And Janko To Part Ways

Sydney FC international marquee Marc Janko will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of this month, the club have announced today.

The striker arrived in July last year scoring 16 goals and winning the Hyundai A-League Golden Boot for the 2014/15 season.

“Marc has done very well this season and we were happy with his performances and his contribution to Sydney FC,” said Head Coach Graham Arnold.

“However he will miss a number of A-league games next season due to international duty with no FIFA breaks in the A-League.  Add that to our busier schedule, including Asian Champions League commitments and after lengthy consideration we have come to this decision.

“On behalf of the club and the team I’d like to thank Marc for his service and the professional way in which he has conducted his business.  We wish him and Austria all the best for the future.”

Sydney FC face two massive games against English Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea in the next ten days with the Sky Blues meeting Spurs on Saturday 30 May followed by Chelsea on Tuesday 2 June in two football classics at ANZ Stadium.
