Hyundai A-League champions Sydney FC begin their 2018 AFC Champions League campaign next month and it’s getting close to the time clubs must finalise their squads.
And with four imports on the books of Sydney FC, coach Graham Arnold has the tough decision of which classy foreigner he leaves out of the three visa spots allowed for the ACL.
Sydney FC’s imports include Serbian star Milos Ninkovic, Polish international Adrian Mierzejewski, Dutch defender Jordy Buijs and Brazilian marquee striker Bobo.
We’re giving fans the chance to play coach and vote for which three players they believe Sydney FC should use for the group stage.

Bobo currently leads the Hyundai A-League’s scoring charts and with only Matt Simon as the club’s other recognised striker, the Brazilian appears a lock for a spot in the squad.
Mierzejewski has yet to taste defeat in a Sydney FC jersey and on the type of form we’ve seen from the stylish Pole, you can mount a strong argument for his inclusion.
The reigning Johnny Warren medallist’s form was a major reason why the Sky Blues qualified for the ACL in the first place and it would be a harsh call to leave him out.
The Dutchman is a key component of the Sky Blues’ miserly defence, forming a formidable partnership with Alex Wilkinson. Can Arnold afford to split up his experienced centre-back pairing.
