Former Japanese star re-signs with Wanderers
Attacking midfielder Shinji Ono has re-signed with the Western
Sydney Wanderers for another year, saying ”we have had a great
season and there is much more to do.”
The 33-year-old Ono, who agreed to a one-year deal with the
first-year club in October, was one of the A-League’s high-profile
signings this season with former Juventus star Alessandro Del Piero
(Sydney FC) and ex-England striker Emile Heskey (Newcastle).
Western Sydney can clinch first place with a win Saturday over
Wanderers coach Tony Popovic said Friday that ”Shinji is an
integral part of our team building next year.”
Ono played 56 times for Japan in a 10-year international career
and made 112 appearances for Feyenoord.
