The 32-year-old hasn’t played since August due to a back injury that sidelined him from the World Cup in Brazil.

Despite his deal beginning in January, Kennedy is not expected to feature for the struggling City until February.

“He’s behind,” City boss John van ‘t Schip is quoted as saying by AAP.

“He didn’t play for a while, he came from injury.

“But he’s getting treatment now.”

City currently sit in seventh on the A-League table with nine points in as many games, but Kennedy is optimistic.

“I hope to win the championship,” Kennedy told reporters.

“Whether it’s possible this year, next year or the year after, we’ll see.”

Kennedy has scored 17 goals in 33 internationals with Australia, and has been selected in Ange Postecoglou’s preliminary squad for January’s Asian Cup.
