Wellington Phoenix star striker Roy Krishna is leaving the A-League club but isn't revealing where he's going until after his honeymoon.
A-League Johnny Warren Medallist Roy Krishna is reportedly set to join a South Korean club after five years with the New Zealand side.
The 31-year-old Fijian striker is coming off a breakout season in which he won the A-League's Golden Boot award by scoring 18 goals in 26 games.
Phoenix today released a statement from Krishna confirming his exit.
“After much thought and consideration and consultation with my family back in Fiji, we have decided to move on from the A-League to secure a future outside of the league," he said.
"We have negotiated a contract and we are currently working out the finer details. We will be announcing the club name when we are back from our belated honeymoon towards the end of June.
"I would like to thank the Wellington Phoenix family for the wonderful five years I’ve been here. Thank you especially to the staff and management. It was not an easy decision as the club has been a huge part of my life. Wellington will always be home.
"If I was going to stay in the A-League then I would have continued with the Wellington Phoenix as we have built a wonderful community together with the club and the wonderful nix supporters.
"I wish the club all the best for the new season and I’m sure with all the plans the club has in store, it’s only going to get better."
