Pellegrino signs on for another year with Crown

Australian midfielder Adriano Pellegrino has extended his contract with Metfone C-League champions Phnom Penh Crown for another year, the club announced.

The 30-year-old playmaker joined Crown halfway through the 2014 league season, with his three goals and 12 assists being a major factor in the side’s fifth title success.

“Everybody has seen the impact [Pellegrino] had during his three-month spell with us and we are happy that he is going to be on our side for the next campaign, supporting our team with his qualities, experience and leadership,” Crown coach Sam Schweingruber said in a press release yesterday.
