My Per­fect XI:

The Cen­tral Coast Mariners full­back has faced some of the best in the world as part of the A-League All Stars. But who’s made the fi­nal list?

‘Be­ing a left­back my­self, he’s some­one I’ve watched closely over the last 10 years or so. Tech­ni­cally he’s very good and he’s got plenty of en­ergy – he’s a great left­back who I try to em­u­late when I can.’


‘He’s just so calm un­der pres­sure – he can speed up or slow down the game to suit the team. When I met him, he seemed re­ally hum­ble – just a nice, gen­uine per­son and I thought that was fan­tas­tic.’


‘He’s the per­fect striker. He knows when to stay high or come low to re­ceive the ball – he can just pick up the ball in space all the time. I had the plea­sure of play­ing with him when he was 39 years old and even then you could see his qual­ity. In his prime, he must have been a top class player.’
