A-League championship-winning mentor Patrick Kisnorbo has signed a two-year coaching extension with Melbourne City.

Former Socceroos defender Kisnorbo led City to last season’s premiership-championship double.

“I’m incredibly honoured and humbled to be given the opportunities that I have had at the club,” said Kisnorbo, who previously coached City’s youth and women’s teams.
“The level of support that we receive here is second to none and it has allowed me to develop both on the pitch as a coach and off the pitch as a person.

“It’s an incredible opportunity to extend my contract for another two years and continue to be part of such a positive environment.

“As a playing group we want to push ourselves and play our attacking style of football. I can’t wait for the new season to start and to see our fans back at AAMI Park.“

City director of football Michael Petrillo said Kisnorbo was an “exceptional club person”.

“Not only has he delivered the on-field results, but he also typifies the type of character we want to keep building this club around into the future,” Petrillo said.

“To see him come through the academy, women’s team and now the A League men’s team not only reinforces the club’s stability, but it’s also testament to the pathway we are able to provide for young aspiring coaches.
