Macarthur FC are pleased to announce 20-year-old Antonis Martis has joined the club on loan from Danish Superliga side FC Midtjylland.
Raised in south-west Sydney, the Cypriot Australian joins Milicic’s inaugural Bulls squad for the 2020/21 A-League season starting on December 27.
A graduate of the FC Midtjylland academy and youth programs, Martis spent the preseason with the reigning Danish top-flight champions.
The talented central midfielder amassed 42 appearances for FC Midtjylland in the Danish u/19 Youth League.
The dual national has earned international representative honours for both countries, captaining the Australian Joeys u/16’s in two tournaments in Vietnam and Cambodia and most recently two u/19 national caps for Cyprus.
Macarthur FC Head Coach Ante Milicic welcomed Martis to the Bulls.
“I’d like to welcome Antonis to the club.
“He is a good young player – an aggressive ball winner with European experience. Having played in the Europa league against many different styles, I am looking forward to seeing him continue to reach his full potential in the A-League.” Milicic said.
Martis said he was excited for the opportunity.
“I’d like to thank Ante for the opportunity to join Macarthur FC for the inaugural season.
“Being based overseas I don’t get the opportunity to play in front of my family and friends too often. I am very excited to be back home playing with Macarthur FC in the inaugural season. I can’t wait to to play at Campbelltown Stadium in front of my family and friends.” Martis said
