Honda set for Melbourne Victory exit

Keisuke Honda’s Melbourne Victory and A-League stay appears set to end after a season.

Melbourne Victory star Keisuke Honda is set to leave the club after just one season in the A-League.

The former AC Milan and Japan star, 32, signed a one-year deal with Victory in August and he has enjoyed a decent campaign in Australia.

Honda has scored seven goals and provided five assists in 18 A-League games, missing part of the season due to a hamstring injury.

But the midfielder – whose team face the Wellington Phoenix in an Elimination Final at AAMI Park on Friday – is set to move on at the end of the campaign.

“I still don’t decide where I will play next year,” Honda told Fox Sports.

“But I knew that I would stay for just [one] year so I hope no one is surprised, no one is disappointed.”

Victory still have at least three games and up to five remaining this season, including two AFC Champions League matches.
