Brosque stays with Sydney FC

Struggling A-League champions Sydney FC have no intention of transferring star striker Alex Brosque to any domestic or overseas club, vice-chairman Scott Barlow declared on Monday.

There had been speculation Brosque would be sold after a big offer from Japanese side Shimizu S-Pulse even though Sydney are just weeks away from starting their AFC Champions League campaign.

"Alex is a key member of our A-League team and forms an integral part of the club's future and that is why we signed Alex to a new three-year contract in 2010," Barlow said.

"Both Alex and Sydney FC made a commitment to each other in the middle of last year when a new, three-year deal was agreed, keeping Alex at our club until the completion of the 2013/14 season.

"It is the view of Sydney FC that as the A-League continues to grow, clubs will need to take a stance on player transfers and begin to put the interests of their club and the A-League first.

"Players should not be encouraged to leave the domestic league at the earliest opportunity."
