Signing news: Muscat confirms next move after City exit

Former Hyundai A-League stalwart Manny Muscat has confirmed his return to National Premier Leagues Victoria side Green Gully.

Having enjoyed an illustrious 229-game career in the Hyundai A-League with Wellington Phoenix and Melbourne City FC, Muscat returns to Green Gully, where he first pulled on the green and white shirt back in 2007.

The 33-year-old has also made seven appearances for Malta and declared his excitement to return to Green Gully for the remainder of the 2018 NPL season.

“I felt Green Gully was a great fit for me, I’m excited to play for the club again,” Muscat told Green Gully’s official website.

“It’s pretty nice knowing you can always come back to a family club, and one I’ve always been associated with.

“Even from a distance, I always liked to keep track of the goings-on, I’ve got a lot friends here and I’m very happy to see out my last years of football here at Gully.

“Based on my first session back, I noticed there are a lot of young players here, hopefully with my experience and knowledge I’ve gained, that can help rub off on the team and we can make a real good push from now to the end of the season.

“Being in Victorian football before, it was very competitive then and it hasn’t changed now. We’re in a good position, and there’s many games ahead this year to make this season a success.”
