AFC Asian Cup winner Jason Davidson has lifted more silverware with his club side NK Olimpija Ljubljana to cap off a promising six-month spell in Slovenia.
Davidson, on loan from Croatian club Rijeka, had already helped Olimpija to the Slovenian league title over the weekend and now was on hand to lift the Slovenian Cup.
Having joined Olimpija in January, Davidson made 13 appearances in all competitions but was unable to take part in the 6-1 win over Aluminij due to an injury.
That didn’t stop Davidson’s club from putting on a show – with Leon Benko scoring a double, while Rok Kronaveter, Goran Brkic, Issah Abass and Ricardo Alves Coelho Silva also scored for the team coached by ex-Liverpool FC player Igor Biscan.
“So disappointed I couldn’t play tonight because of injury,” wrote Davidson on Twitter.
“But amazing feeling to end the season with another cup. Well done boys we did it the double.”
Elsewhere, former Hyundai A-League midfielder Rostyn Griffiths has confirmed his departure from Uzbek club Pakhtakor.
Griffiths, who plied his trade in Australia with the Central Coast Mariners and Perth Glory, tweeted that a return home is on the cards ahead of the birth of his and wife Caris’ first child.
"Well our time in Pakhtakor has come to an end," Griffiths wrote. "Myself and Pakhtakor FC mutually agreed to terminate my contract early.
"My wife and I had some great memories over the past 10 months and have seen and experienced things we both never thought we would.
"I would like to wish the club all the best for the future and hope they win the league which they're setup to do currently sitting top of the table."
Griffiths, 30, also enjoyed spells with Adelaide United and North Queensland Fury before stints in China (Guangzhou R&F) and the Netherlands (Roda JC).
