Classy Melbourne Victory midfielder Gui Finkler will remain at the club until at least the end of the 2015/16 Hyundai A-League season, after agreeing to terms on a new two-year deal.
The exciting news was announced by club Chairman Anthony Di Pietro at Friday night's Victory Medal in front of more than 600 guests at Crown-s Palladium.
Finkler played in every A-League match this season, scoring an impressive nine goals in his 29 appearances.
The 28-year-old said he was delighted to be extending his time in Melbourne.
“I love everything about Melbourne and I-m thrilled that I-ll be here for at least another two years,” Finkler said.
“Next season will be a very exciting one for us as a club and I am really happy to remain a part of Kevin (Muscat)-s squad. I know we-re all desperate to go one step further and make the Grand Final in 2014/15, so I can-t wait to help the club be even better.
“Melbourne Victory is a great club to play for - the fans, the facilities, the coaches, the staff - everything about it is fantastic for a player."
Coach Kevin Muscat said the Brazilian was an important piece of the puzzle and he was excited to have him in Victory colours for the next two seasons.
“Gui is a talented individual and a big part of our set-up, so it-s fantastic we will be able to call on his services for another two years,” Muscat said
“We also know how big of a presence he is in our changeroom and he certainly provides plenty of advice and insight to the other boys, especially the younger ones, in the squad.
“Gui is extremely popular with our fans as well, so I know I speak on behalf of all of them when I say how pleased we are he will remain with us at Melbourne Victory.”
