Named team captain at the start of the current season, the former Johnny Warren Medal-winner is approaching four years with the club he joined from Spanish Primera Liga outfit Getafe in August 2015. 

"I have had a fantastic emotional relationship with the members and fans since the first day I arrived here," the man who is affectionately known as 'El Maestro' said. "And I want to keep that love story with the fans going.

"Now I want to help the club add another trophy to the Premiers' Plate."
