Thompson re-signs with Melbourne Victory

Melbourne: A-League football`s all-time leading goalscorer Archie Thompson has signed a three-year contract extension with the Melbourne Victory, ensuring he will remain in the Australian league through 2014. Thompson, 32, has been sidelined with a knee injury since last season`s grand final but has now regained fitness and may play for the Victory in Saturday`s home match against Gold Coast.

He has been a key figure in Melbourne`s two championship victories since the league`s inception and said he would never consider moving to another club. He leads the A-League`s all-time scoring list with 49 goals.
