Reds confirm Juric departure

Adelaide United can officially confirm the departure of Tomi Juric following the completion of his contract.

The Socceroo international joined the Reds at the beginning of last season on a one-year deal after spending the previous five years plying his trade in Europe.

In his second stint with United, the 29-year-old scored nine goals in 18 matches, which included a brace in an Elimination Final win over Brisbane Roar.

Speaking on leaving the Club, Juric said: “I have enjoyed every moment of my time being back with Adelaide United. 

“I’m very happy with how well we went this season, as a playing group and as a club, but I leave disappointed that we couldn’t give our fans the opportunity to see us play in this year’s Grand Final having come so close. 

“I’d like to thank the Club for their support, all the staff for their hard work and trust, and especially my teammates.

“The group has a great bond and a fantastic atmosphere with plenty of potential within it.

“Lastly, the fans, thank you for your tremendous support throughout the season, it doesn’t go unnoticed and is much appreciated.”

Adelaide United Chief Executive Officer, Nathan Kosmina, said: “On behalf of the Club, I want to thank Tomi for his contributions this season.

“Tomi is a true professional both on and off the field and we wish him all the best for his future endeavours.”
