Steve Corica's tenure at Sydney FC has begun in perfect fashion with the club re-signing ace midfielder Milos Ninkovic for a further two seasons.
The former Johnny Warren Medal Winner will stay with the Sky Blues for a fourth and fifth season after recommitting to the club he joined in 2015.
The 2017 Grand Final hero said he was looking forward to spending another two seasons with the reigning Premiers.
"Sydney FC is my home and my family, and I'm so happy to be staying a Sky Blue," Ninkovic said.
"I've enjoyed some of the best moments of my career here, I've won four titles in three years, and my family loves this city too.
"It's fabulous to be staying here with this fantastic group of players and I know we will have another great year.
"I'm excited by the journey ahead in the new season and I can't wait for the silverware still to come."
Sydney FC Head Coach Steve Corica hailed Ninkovic's signing as a great positive for the season ahead.
“You've seen over the last three seasons what a player Milos is,” Corica said.
"His influence both on and off the pitch makes him such a great asset for this team, and to have such a fantastic creative outlet in the squad is a big bonus.
"I'm expecting him to be one of our key orchestrators next season and I'm glad that we’ve been able to retain another one of our core group of players."
Ninkovic has made a total of 99 appearances for the Sky Blues in all competitions, scoring 24 goals in the process.
