Melbourne Victory is pleased to announce the re-signing of defender Jason Geria for the 2022/23 Isuzu UTE A-League season.
The 29-year-old will extend his contract until the end of the 2023/24 season, after having made 29 appearances across all competitions last season, re-establishing himself as one of the league’s best full-backs.
Melbourne Victory Director of Football, John Didulica said Geria’s stellar form in the 2021/22 campaign was an important asset to Victory’s defensive record.
“We’re excited to have Jason back for the next two seasons and believe he will continue as one of the A-League’s pre-eminent defenders,” Didulica said.
“Jason’s performances last season set a high and consistent standard across the campaign and his contribution was critical to building our ominous defence, which we’re looking to continue next season.”
Geria was also looking forward to extending his time at Victory.
“I’m delighted to be able to sign for the Club for another two seasons and play in front of the Victory fans at AAMI Park again,” Geria said.
“There is no doubt the environment at Melbourne Victory brings the best out of me as a player and I’m looking forward to building upon the work we did last season.”
Geria is the Club’s fifth re-signing of the 2022/23 pre-season, joining Rai Marchan, Will Wilson, Leigh Broxham and Matt Spiranovic as well as new signings, George Timotheou and Noah Smith.
