Mr Barlow said that Mr Berger will be a valuable addition to the Sydney FC board and that the club will benefit immensely from having a director of Mr Berger's football and technical experience.

"Han and I have developed a very good relationship over the last few years and I am delighted that he will now join our board,” said Mr Barlow.

"As Sydney FC enters a new phase of strategic growth, we will be harnessing all of that experience to help grow the club and we will welcome his contribution to the board," said Mr Barlow.

Mr Berger said he will be passionate about helping Sydney FC grow in his new role as a director.
