Alves cut from A-League's Sydney FC

Brazilian defender Fabio Alves has been cut from Sydney FC after just one year at the A-League franchise.

The Sky Blues on Monday said the club and Alves had "mutually agreed" to terminate his contract, as coach Frank Farina rebuilds his squad for the 2013-14 season.

Farina thanked Alves for his contribution but admitted he wasn't in line to feature in the starting line-up next season.

"We are looking to change things going forward and we couldn't guarantee Fabio the regular first-team football he requires," Farina said in a statement.

Alves made his A-League debut with Melbourne Victory in 2011, scoring one goal in 23 appearances for the club.

He switched to Sydney FC last year after his 12-month contract at the Victory wasn't extended.

The former Brazil under-20 representative played 18 games for Sydney FC, who narrowly missed out on a spot in the finals after finishing seventh.
