“We wish him all the best for the future.”

Cernak, who scored twice during his stay in Melbourne, said, “I made some great friends at Melbourne Victory and it-s sad to be leaving, but I-d like to thank the club for the opportunities they gave me and I wish everyone well for the rest of the season and beyond.”

“I haven-t featured too often this season so I need to explore other opportunities to continue my development as a player” Cernak added.
