As revealed on last night’s For Vuck’s Sake podcast, Kosta Barbarouses could be on the move to Wellington Phoenix from next season.
Our sources tell us that Kosta has agreed to return to his home country as one of Wellington’s marquees. The contract would be a significant amount more than what he could get at the Victory, with Melbourne’s top-tier talent, such as Valeri, Khalfallah, Georgievski, Bozanic and Berisha all tied up on big deals until at least the end of next season.
With the ageing Archie Thompson expected to announce his retirement at seasons end, this could mean a major shake up for Melbourne’s formation and the way the team plays from next season onwards.
