McBreen leaves Mariners for China on loan

A-League premiers the Central Coast Mariners have sent 2012/13 Golden Boot winner Daniel McBreen to Chinese club Shanghai SIPG on a loan agreement.

He'll begin the agreement with Shanghai on July 1 and will be back in November, in time to play in round four of the next A-League season against Newcastle Jets.

The 36-year-old says he's looking forward to immersing himself in a new culture and catching up with former Mariners teammate Bernie Ibini, who now plays for Shanghai.

"It's something I am looking forward to," he said.

"Obviously Bernie has gone there. It's a wonderful city and a club that is looking to do things and get bigger and better, so to be part of that will be a great experience."

Shanghai coach Gao Hongbo wanted McBreen after coaching against the Central Coast in the Asian Champions League in his previous job at Guizhou Renhe.

"We did well in making the last 16 of the AFC Champions League," McBreen said.

"With Bernie going there and now myself, we have obviously made an impression and we think we can make a good impact over there.

"It's nice to get recognition and the chance to play in a country and a city that is on the up."
