Germany's Polenz stays on in A-League



Defender Jerome Polenz Saturday re-signed for a further A-League season with the Western Sydney Wanderers and expects more German players to follow him and play in Australia.

Polenz, 26, said his game was thriving at the newest A-League club who are third in the league and he was keen to stay in Australia.

"I re-signed because I am very happy to stay," Polenz said. "My wife and I are very happy living in western Sydney and I love playing for this club."

Polenz said he was first inspired to leave Berlin for Sydney after seeing a documentary on Brisbane Roar's German star Thomas Broich and now there is growing interest in Germany about Polenz and his teammates at the Wanderers.

"It is amazing back home because they just ran a big feature on me in German papers and all of my friends and family keep hearing about us here," Polenz said.

"Other footballers are calling me from back home and asking me about football down here and about the league."
