Melbourne City coach Patrick Kisnorbo has re-signed for a further two years, tying him to the A-League Men's club until the end of the 2024/25 season.

Kisnorbo was a raging success in his first year as head coach, leading City to the Premiers Plate and the Championship double last season.

The 40-year-old still had two more years to run on his existing contract, but City were keen to lock him in for the long term and have now added another two years to the deal.

The re-signing of Kisnorbo is crucial to the squad's stability, with the majority of the 2020/21 team remaining at the club this season.

"I'm incredibly honoured and humbled to be given the opportunities that I have had at the club," Kisnorbo said.

"The level of support that we receive here is second to none and it has allowed me to develop both on the pitch as a coach and off the pitch as a person.

"It's an incredible opportunity to extend my contract for another two years and continue to be part of such a positive environment.

"As a playing group we want to push ourselves and play our attacking style of football. I can't wait for the new season to start and to see our fans back at AAMI Park."

Melbourne City have been installed as early favourites to win this season's title, with Sydney FC, Melbourne Victory, Western Sydney, and Perth Glory among the chasing pack.
