Wanderers re-sign Haliti, Trifiro

May 1, 2013

Western Sydney Wanderers have re-signed Labinot Haliti and Jason Trifiro for the 2013-14 A-League season.

Haliti and Trifiro were both members of the Wanderers side defeated by Central Coast Mariners in the grand final last month after securing the Premier's Plate three weeks previously.

Striker Haliti and midfielder Trifiro both said they were keen to build on the stunning success of the Wanderers' debut season.

"I'm very happy to be staying and playing for the best fans in the country," Haliti said in a statement.

"This year has been an exciting one and I'm grateful to the coaching staff who believe in me and under them I can only improve."

Haliti came on as a second-half substitute in the grand final, while Trifiro wasn't called upon by coach Tony Popovic.

Haliti played 19 games for the Wanderers last season and scored five goals. Trifiro played 15 games.

Wanderers executive chairman Lyall Gorman welcomed the retention of both players.

"Labinot and Jason played an integral part in this journey and contributed to our success in winning the Premier's Plate and making grand final," Gorman said.

"We look forward to another successful season from both players."
