“The group is hungry for success” – Brett Holman extension reshapes Brisbane Roar


Brisbane Roar have announced Brett Holman has inked a new one-season deal with the club, moving him underneath the salary cap.

Young gun Nick D’Agostino has also re-signed for the same length.

Former Socceroo Holman, now 34, initially signed with the Roar as a marquee player at the beginning of the 2016-17 A-League season.

His new contract means Brisbane have two marquee spots to play with after Massimo Maccarone’s release last month.

“I’m really happy to continue my playing career in Brisbane and I can’t wait to wear orange again in 2018-19,” Holman said.

“It’s onwards and upwards from here and I’m excited about what the future holds.

“The group is hungry for success and I’m looking forward to helping the team challenge for another title.”

Like many of his Brisbane teammates, Holman endured an injury-interrupted 2017-18 campaign, missing their elimination final against Melbourne City.

Brisbane coach John Aloisi though was pleased to have locked down two more players.

“We’re are pleased that two more talented players have committed their futures to our club,” he said.

“We are confident that Brett and Nick will have important roles to play in our success moving forward.

“Both players will give us depth and further options in the front third with the qualities they possess.

“I am pleased with how the squad is taking shape as we look to have a successful 2018-19 campaign and we build for the future.”

The Roar have already signed strikers Adam Taggart and Dylan Wenzel-Halls this offseason, while Maccarone, Mitch Oxborrow and Corey Gameiro have departed.
