Alex Brosque’s future at Al Ain remains uncertain with no word of any contract renewal from the club, the player said Thursday.

“I am waiting for the technical committee’s report and the decision of Al Ain’s board of directors. If I have reached the end of the road with the team, I will embark on a new journey with another team,” the Australian said.

“My contract with Al Ain is about to end and it is no secret that I am negotiating with my former team Sydney FC. Perhaps it would be a wise choice to go back in case my contract is not renewed. I will discuss these offers with my family to reach the best decision possible.”

Brosque won an Arabian Gulf League and a President’s Cup in his two seasons at Al Ain after arriving from Japan’s Shimizu S-Pulse.

The side have also reached the last-eight stage in the Asian Champions League this season after a 4-2 aggregate win over Al Jazira in the last 16 earlier this month.

“All I can say is that it was a great season for us,” the Australian forward said when asked about a season that concluded with Al Ain winning the President’s Cup and earning a qualifying spot in the 2015 ACL.

“We have achieved all our goals by reaching the quarter final of the ACL and winning the UAE President’s Cup, despite our faltering start, which reflected on our productivity at the league championship.

“Our slow start to the season lost the team many points and widened the gap between us and the other teams competing for the first places, especially at the league championship.

“Consequently, the focus shifted to winning the UAE President’s Cup and to being qualified for the quarter-final of the ACL.”
