FBK Looking For One More Year in Melbourne

The Team

Melbourne Victory forward Fahid Ben Khalfallah feels he has more to give as his contract comes to an end, declaring his hope that he can play on next year in Victory colours.

Speaking to For Vuck’s Sake, Khalfallah said that he is hoping to extend his stay in Melbourne before finishing his career.

“I want to play one more year, physically I feel good… I might stop my career in 2018” Khalfallah told FVS.

The 2014/15 Victory medalist was also hopeful of taking up a role after his playing days with the club, signalling an intention to work behind the scenes in a coaching capacity.

“In the future I hope I can work with the club. I think I can help them with the academy.”

Whether the Victory offer FBK a contract next year remains to be seen. The forward has failed to capture the same form that saw him become a fan favourite after his first season and has seen his role change this year, often making appearances off the bench with Muscat preferring Mitch Austin over the Tunisian born player.
