Official release from Central Coast Mariners
Central Coast Mariners can this morning confirm media speculation that former Qantas Socceroos utility Mile Sterjovski has agreed terms with the Club on an initial one-season contract.
The experienced and highly regarded Sterjovski, 33, who represented Australia under Guus Hiddink and Mariners boss Graham Arnold at the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, will arrive on the Central Coast on Monday to formalise his deal with the yellow and navy.
Having worked with Sterjovski for many years with the National Team, Arnold this morning spoke of his delight that the former LOSC Lille, FC Basel and Derby County player will link with the 2011/12 Hyundai A-League Premiers.
“I’ve known Mile for a long time and he will bring a lot of quality and experience to our squad,” Arnold said.
“He is a great guy who will fit in perfectly with the culture we have built at the Mariners.
“Mile knows where the back of the net is and I am looking forward to him getting some goals for the Club.”
