The cull of ’s playing list has begun with the club reaching an agreement to terminate the contract of defender Jacques after an 18-month stint at the club.

Faty played 20 matches this season, triggering a clause in his one-year contract for next season, but the club and the player decided not to act on the arrangement, instead agreeing to part ways.

“Jacques has given great service to the club and played an integral part in our record-breaking season last year,” said coach Graham Arnold. “We thank him for the time he has given to Sydney FC and wish him all the best for the future.”

However, as the year went on, Faty begun struggling with the pace of the league and ended up committing a string of errors, leading coach Graham Arnold to drop him from the starting side.

He was also overlooked for the club’s Asian Champions League campaign, with Arnold preferring Milos Ninkovic, Milos Dimitrijevic and Faty’s cousin, Mickael Tavares, for the three foreigner spots.
