Brisbane Roar is excited to announce that Dimitri Petratos has re-signed with the club.
Petratos joined the Roar in June on a season-long deal and has now penned a new two-year contract extension that will keep him in orange until the end of the Hyundai A-League 2015/16 season.
The 21-year-old has scored four goals in his last two appearances for Brisbane, including a hat-trick against former club Sydney FC on Boxing Day.
“This is a result of Dimi’s hard work on and off the football pitch,” Head Coach Mike Mulvey said.
“I’ve been impressed with his attitude since joining us. Dimi understood he needed to be patient and now he’s reaping the rewards.
“I can see he’s continually pushing himself to perform and improve as a Brisbane Roar player.”
Petratos was equally excited to extend his time with the two-time Hyundai A-League Champions.
“I’m really happy because I feel comfortable here and I’m enjoying my football,” he said.
“The club made me feel welcome right from the start and I think the way we play our football suits me as a player.”
The Sydney-born attacking player has made 11 appearances for the Roar, starting four, and is looking forward to continually pushing his claims under Mulvey.
“When I joined the club, my focus was on getting game time but I knew I would have to work hard,” Petratos said.
“I feel like I’ve grown as a player since coming to Brisbane so I hope I can keep doing that.”
Petratos and his Roar teammates face Adelaide United this Saturday, 11 January in round 14 of the Hyundai A-League 2013/14 season. Kick-off at Suncorp Stadium is at 4.30pm.
