“We have started the process of re-shaping the squad for the 2013/14 season and we need to make some tough decisions to allow ourselves the opportunity to do that. We are excited about some of the options before us and we are confident we can put together a squad the fans can be proud of.

“On behalf of Sydney FC, I-d like to thank the players for their efforts and wish them the best of luck in the future.”

Contracted Sydney FC players for the 2013/14 season are: Ivan Necevski, Sebastian Ryall, Fabio Alves, Pascal Bosschaart, Brett Emerton, Alessandro Del Piero, Blake Powell, Mitch Mallia, Terry McFlynn, Joel Chianese, Terry Antonis, Vedran Janjetovic, Ali Abbas, Rhyan Grant, Daniel Petkovski, Hagi Gligor, Peter Triantis and Joel Griffiths.
