Melbourne Victory captain Muscat to play on
Melbourne Victory captain Kevin Muscat will play on next season, putting retirement plans on hold.
The two-time A-League championship winning skipper is in talks with the club over a new contract and coach Ernie Merrick is confident a deal will be struck soon.
“I am quite optimistic Kevin will re-sign as a player and as a coach,” Merrick said.
“I don’t do the negotiations. That’s left to Gary Cole (football operations manager). Kevin’s so fit I feel that he could go on for a few years but he only deals in one year at a time.”
