Kosta Barbarouses


A speedy forward with an eye for goal, New Zealand international Kosta Barbarouses has achieved plenty in the Hyundai A-League.

Barbarouses made a welcome return to Melbourne Victory in June 2017, after a short stint with Wellington Phoenix.

The Kiwi was the leading scorer in Ange Postecoglou’s all-conquering, Championship-winning Brisbane Roar side in 2010/11 before heading aboard for spells in Russia and Greece.

He later established himself as one of Victory’s keys to success, finishing fourth in the Johnny Warren Medal as the club won the Premiership-Championship double in 2014/15.
