Roar have signed Fahid Ben Khalfallah


Friday, 26 May 2017

Brisbane Roar Football Club are excited to announce the signing of former Tunisian international forward Fahid Ben Khalfallah for the Hyundai A-League 2017/18 season.

The versatile Championship winning playmaker joins Brisbane after three seasons at Melbourne Victory, where he made 76 appearances, scoring 12 goals and creating 15 assists.

Head Coach John Aloisi believes the addition of the experienced front man known as ?FBK? will bring a unique blend of class and attacking intent to the Roar side.

?Fahid?s experience and versatility will strengthen our already talented squad,? Aloisi said.

?His ability to play out wide or in the middle of our attack gives us greater unpredictability and creativity that will excite our fans.

?Most importantly though, we believe he will suit our style of play.?

The French-born-and-raised winger came to Australia after a distinguished career in France, including 76 appearances over four seasons for Ligue 1 giants Girondins Bordeaux, a team he joined for a fee of 5 million euros in 2010.

Brisbane?s new recruit said the opportunity to continue to play in the Hyundai A-League with one of the most successful team?s was a challenge he would relish.

?I?m very happy to sign with Brisbane. It was an easy decision to come to a Club that has won many Championships and Grand Finals,?

Caltex Socceroos Head Coach Ange Postecoglou has named a 30-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Saudi Arabia at Adelaide Oval on June 8.

The 30-man squad includes five players from the Hyundai A-League, six uncapped players and, for the first time since 2008, a set of brothers, with Adelaide-born siblings Ryan and Dylan McGowan named in Postecoglou?s squad for the hometown clash against Saudi Arabia.

The squad will be trimmed to 23 players on Wednesday May 31 with the same squad moving onto Melbourne for the friendly with Brazil on June 13 and then Russia for the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, where the Caltex Socceroos will face Germany, Cameroon and Chile in the group stage.

 ?I?m happy with the 30-man squad we have been able to name for the upcoming June international window but initially our energy and focus will be solely on the World Cup Qualifier against Saudi Arabia in Adelaide,? Postecoglou said. ?It is the most important game we will play over the June period.?

?The group is tight at the moment and Saudi Arabia will be a tough opponent but we have always been strong on home soil and I see no reason why that won?t continue in front of our fans at Adelaide Oval on June 8.?

The team will begin assembling in Adelaide on Friday (2 June) giving Postecoglou and hi

Ankle injury forces club legend Thomas Broich to pull out of planned farewell

THOMAS Broich has played his last game for the Roar, with the star playmaker ruling himself out of Brisbane?s AFC Champions League match against Ulsan Hyundai at Suncorp Stadium on Wednesday night due to an ankle problem.

Roar medical staff had cleared Broich to play, with the club having promoted Brisbane?s season-ending match as the chance for fans to farewell the two-time Johnny Warren Medallist.

However, a lingering ankle issue had been playing on Broich?s mind since the Roar?s A-League semi-final loss to Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park eight days ago.

He made the final call at training on Monday morning.

?I rocked up to training still hoping that I?d be all right but it?s just too painful at the moment,? Broich said.

?There?s no reason to push it now.?

Roar managing director Mark Kingsman was disappointed that Broich had declared himself unfit, claiming there was no danger of further damage to the ankle had he had played on Wednesday night.

?The club wanted him to play and were expecting him to play,? Kingsman said.

?It?s a shame because all the fans wanted to come to say goodbye to him.?

Broich, who last month revealed he was leaving the Roar due to not being guaranteed a contract for next season, plans to be at Suncorp Stadium on Wednesday to say thanks to Brisbane fans.

?I want to say goodbye and express gratitude towards a lot of people
