The 31-year-old Fijian international is off-contract and attracting interest from around the league for a big-money marquee deal.
The Johnny Warren Medal is awarded by a judging panel of former professional players, referees, technical experts and members of the media for the A-League regular season. Panel members from each of the four groups were appointed to vote on a 3-2-1 basis on every match.
Krishna received 31 points from the panel, two ahead of Adelaide United's Isaias and Perth Glory's Neil Kilkenny.
