Brisbane Roar secure Berisha to new contract

Reigning A-League champions have secured star striker Besart Berisha to a new deal.

The 26-year old Albanian international, who leads the league's scoring chart on 13 goals, has penned a contract which will keep him with the Roar at least until the end of the 2013/14 season.

Berisha, who spent all his career in Europe before moving to Brisbane in August, admits he is enjoying his football more than he ever has and was delighted to pledge his commitment to the Roar cause.

"I've played at high level and at small level in Europe but the most I've ever enjoyed my football is here now in Brisbane so there's no reason to change anything," Berisha said.

"Everything around me - the team is amazing, the club is fantastic and professional, the staff as well… it's just a pleasure to work here.

"From the first day, the team made me feel welcome and in the end, it's important not to look at what other clubs offer you, it's important to be somewhere you have fun and of course, I have a lot of enjoyment in Brisbane.

"I really feel well - I've found friends, I've found people who really care for other people and especially the team, we really stick together and it's really a pleasure to be here."
