ADAM Le Fondre reckons lifting a league title with Sydney FC justifies his decision to quit Wanderers last season.

The 32-year-old striker has finished up top scorer of the Hyundai A League with 18 goals, scoring in the decisive penalty shoot-out to hand the Sky Blues their record-equalling fourth grand final victory.

Le Fondre’s decision to terminate the last 12 months of his Bolton contract just a month into the new season remains a talking point at his former club.

But after moving his family across the world for a two-year deal with Sydney, the victory against Perth Glory has helped validate his choice.

“Unbelievable – it’s one of my crowning achievements. I came out here to win big things and what better than winning the prize thing in Australia. I’m really buzzing. It’s what I came for really,” Le Fondre told FOX Sports.

“It’s a testament to the boys. They’re such a great group. Team spirit carries you a long way in football.

“I can’t speak highly enough of the boys and how they’ve accepted me. We’ve got such a fantastic group, it’s carried us all the way here.

“It fully vindicates everything I’ve done in the past 12 months. To come out here and be a champion – that’s what I wanted to do, I wanted to win things.

“[Now] we look forward to backing it up again next season, that’s what champions do.”
