Melbourne Victory have appointed their new man at the helm. Former Adelaide United manager Marco Kurz.
I look forward to seeing how he can take this club further.
Kurz led Adelaide to a top four finish and a semi final berth against Perth Glory.
Kurz has already shown he can make a successful team work under a salary cap budget and last season’s efforts is proof of that.
Craig Goodwin was brought back to Adelaide from the Netherlands and produced 10 goals and 9 assists. He had very minimal game time in the Netherlands so this was a nice turn-around.
The signing of Japanese International Keisuke Honda last season had the league in a buzz. Honda sustained an injury in November. Despite a comeback from the knock, he was unable to return to his great form . Honda finished up his one year deal with seven goals/assists. That’s honourable statistics but Victory fans expected more. Especially considering the hype of the import and all the international attention he brought to the A-league.
It’s now time to get back to where Melbourne should be.. at the top.
