Former Players Wrap- 07/02/2017Posted: February 7, 2017
Petratos completes Ulsan move
Dimi Petratos is officially a former Roar player having completed his move to South Korean side Ulsan Hyundai. Ulsan pushed for the deal to be completed this week in order to avoid the attacking midfielder being cup tied with Brisbane Roar for the 2017 AFC Champions League. AFC rules state that players may only represent one club throughout the competition. It’s expected that Brisbane and Newcastle Jets –whom Petratos had signed a three year deal with just two weeks ago- will share the transfer fee, rumoured to be around $300,000. Best of luck Dimi.
Henrique headed for Thailand
Grand Final hero Henrique is headed for the Thai Super League after agreeing to join Chiangrai United last week. It’s been a tough 12 months for the slippery fish since his departure from the Roar, with a brief stint in Malaysia before retiring to the A-League with Adelaide United. Despite the poor season that the defending champions are having, Henrique made 13 appearances for the club, scoring three goals. Henrique will be joining former Western Sydney Wanderers attacker Mark Bridge at the club.
Adnan on the move
Another player on the move in the last days of the transfer window was Sayed Mohamed Adnan, who has returned to his homeland with Al-Hidd after spending the first part of the season in Qatar with Al-Ahli. The now 34 year old Adnan made 14 appearances for the Qatari club, and ironically returns to the club where he spent four seasons between 2013-2016. Unfortunately for Adnan and his new (old?) teammates, Al-Hidd failed in their attempts to make the AFC Champions League Group Stage, losing to Uzbek side Nasaf last week in Tashkent
