Socceroos full-back Ivan Franjic is happy to have his club future sorted, but he is already thinking beyond the 2015-16 season with Melbourne City.
Franjic endured a frustrating spell in Russia with Torpedo Moscow, making just five appearances for the club before his departure.
The former Brisbane Roar star signed a three-year deal with City ahead of the next A-League season.
"Going back to the A-League was something I thought long and hard about and I thought it was the right move in my career at this time," Franjic told FFA TV.
"Spending a year there and really focusing on playing first-team football and then see what happens after that."
Franjic is with the Socceroos as they continue preparations for Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against Kyrgyzstan in Bishkek.
Despite being expected to claim three points, Franjic said there was no added pressure on Ange Postecoglou's men.
"Don't really think we look at it as pressure. We just keep doing what we've been doing. It's been getting us results," he said.
"We just keep training, worrying about ourselves and know that the result will come if we play well."comments
