Elise Kellond-Knight is one of the finest Matildas servants of all-time, but now the two-time Brisbane Roar champion is back with a vengeance.
KK will link up with one of the finest spines in the competition when she joins Katrina Gorry, on-fire Tameka Yallop - fresh from a double digit goal tally in Norway - and somebody called Clare Polkinghorne for Brisbane Roar's massive title tilt this season.
Kellond-Knight became one of the world's best midfielders during her time in Brisbane, forging her path for an incredibly successful European career across Germany and Sweden.
She departed the Roar for Melbourne City last season, but now she's back where it all began.
“It’s like I’ve stepped out of time and come back in,” said Kellond-Knight.
“It’s great to come home and be surrounded by everything I grew up with and live close to my family – it’ll be a great thing for me.”
The Matildas trio have a massive battle on their hands steadying the Roar ship after the departure of Mel Andreatta, but Kellond-Knight has pledged her allegiance to new coach, Jake Goodship.
"Jake is passionate, with a great drive and he wants to be a winner, as I do too,” Kellond-Knight continued.
“I had so many successful seasons here in Brisbane and I have the drive to be part of a Championship-winning team again.”
