Kristensen re-signs

From member's mail.

Our Great Dane signs on Danish midfielder Thomas Kristensen has signed a new contract committing his future to Brisbane Roar FC following a standout start to his Hyundai A-League career.

Kristensen has played a key role in Brisbane?s campaign so far and is enjoying life Down Under in his maiden season in Australia.

With his future now sorted Kristensen is determined to keep working hard and helping the side be successful this season.

?I?m really pleased to commit my future to Brisbane, it was an easy decision,? Kristensen said.

?It?s nice for myself and my family to know where our future lies, the focus now is to continue to perform well in the remaining Hyundai A-league matches.?

?In football, you have good and bad spells but I believe in what we are doing and I know that this group can be successful if we work hard for it.?

The 11-time Danish International signed for the Roar during the off-season and has slotted seamlessly into the Roar set-up and style of play. His combination at the base of midfield with Captain Matt McKay has drawn praise from Head Coach John Aloisi.

With a big month of football ahead Football Director Craig Moore was pleased to tie up Kristensen on a long-term contract.

?From day one Thomas has embraced the Roar style of play and shown strong leadership both on and off the park.?

A-League club Brisbane Roar strike a blow for sanity by honouring their past


It's official. Brisbane Roar will be celebrating their 60th anniversary this year. It's a great pleasure to be able to say that.

The history of the Roar has been muddied ? perhaps deliberately by some ? since the A-League license first changed hands in 2008. It's changed hands twice since, and is now owned by the Bakrie Group, of Indonesia. Thankfully, rightfully, the owners have opted to respect history, rather than trash it. "You can't ignore your heritage," Roar managing director Mark Kingsman said. So true.

Thus the club born as Hollandia in 1957, which became Brisbane Lions when the NSL was formed in 1977, is turning 60 years old. Changes of name, or ownership, doesn't change the bloodline. Never has, never will. So there will be functions organised to celebrate the anniversary and next season the Roar will wear a commemorative emblem on their shirts.

Those shirts will remain orange, even though the club wore a one-off maroon shirt early this season. "Orange

Brisbane Roar set to re-sign midfielder Thomas Kristensen

Brisbane Roar set to re-sign midfielder Thomas Kristensen

THE impressive form of Thomas Kristensen is set to earn the Danish international a new Brisbane Roar contract.

Kristensen, 33, signed a season-long deal with the Roar when he linked with the three-time A-League champions in July after two years with Dutch club ADO Den Haag.

He had big shoes to fill, replacing the club?s reigning player of the year Corona ? who returned to Spain ? in the holding midfield role. And Kristensten has not disappointed, defying an injury affected pre-season to become not only the midfield enforcer the Roar had been searching for, but also a threat when going forward.

Roar football director Craig Moore said he would hold talks this week with Kristensen?s agent and was confident of finalising a contract extension.

?Thomas has been excellent for us and he?s enjoying his football here,? Moore said. ?We?re keen to keep him and he?s keen to stay.?

Kristensen is among a host of Roar players off contract at the end of the season. Others include Jamie Maclaren, Thomas Broich, Jade North, Michael Theo, Luke DeVere, Dimitri Petratos, Manuel Arana and Jacob Pepper.

Key striker Maclaren has rejected Brisbane?s offer to re-sign him, while attacking weapon Petratos is yet to accept a new deal that has been put in front of him.
