Robbie Kruse has signed a one-year contract extension with Melbourne Victory.

The attacker, who has represented the Socceroos 75 times, resumed training on Gosch’s Paddock today alongside new teammates and fellow Socceroos, Matthew Spiranovic, Jason Davidson and Josh Brillante.

Kruse has made 30 A-League appearances for Victory since returning to the Club in 2019.

Head Coach, Tony Popovic, said he is looking forward to working with Kruse.

“Robbie has great football qualities and a lot to offer to the squad,” Popovic said.

“He has had a fantastic career, having played in Europe and for the Socceroos and this experience will be invaluable to the team.

“Robbie is very determined to show he has more to give, to the team as well as to the Melbourne Victory members and fans and I believe he will play an important role for the team this season.”

Kruse is also looking forward to contributing to the success of the new squad under Tony Popovic.

“I am looking forward to getting back out on the pitch and working hard in the lead up to the 2021/22 season,” Kruse said.

“Tony Popovic and I spoke about the role I can play and how I can contribute to the success of Melbourne Victory this season and I am excited about the opportunity.

“I know the squad and coaches are already planning for the year ahead and I want to be a part of getting Melbourne Victory back to where we should be for our fans and members.”
