Ninkovic was Sydney's hero in the Grand Final, netting the winning penalty in a shoot-out success against Melbourne Victory on Sunday.

He enjoyed a stunning campaign that included scoring nine goals and setting up 11 others.


Sydney coach Graham Arnold said: "Milos has proven to be a class above this season and his understanding with the rest of our strike force will only continue to flourish.

"It is a huge tribute to Sydney FC, our staff and the culture we have at the club, that after such a fabulous season, he has agreed to come back for another year.

"It is an exciting time to be a Sydney FC supporter with the AFC Champions League coming up and a chance to further assert our command on Australian football."
