“I’m really pleased to commit my future to Brisbane, it was an easy decision,” Kristensen said.

“It’s nice for myself and my family to know where our future lies, the focus now is to continue to perform well in the remaining Hyundai A-league matches.”

“In football, you have good and bad spells but I believe in what we are doing and I know that this group can be successful if we work hard for it.”
