Michael Jakobsen was an influential figure at City across his two seasons with the club and 43 appearances.
Our photographer, Aleks Jason, shares his favourite images of Captain Jako, since the Dane joined the club in 2016.
Jakobsen (L) tries to catch goal-scorer Tim Cahill who, seconds before, headed City into the lead in the FFA Cup final at AAMI Park. First leaping onto the advertising board, Jakobsen jumps off again to chase Cahill as he makes his way to the corner flag. Jakobsen was part of the City squad that helped deliver the Club its first men’s trophy.
Let the celebrations commence…
Michael Jakobsen pauses next to fellow Dane Thomas Sorensen with the FFA Cup as their team mates jump the advertising boards to share in delight with the city faithful in November 2016.

Jump for joy
… and then the real celebration. Jakobsen launches himself in the air after scoring his first goal in the A-League in March this year. His first goal for the club came two minutes into his debut against Western Sydney Wanderers in the FFA Cup Quarter Final of 2016.
