Aloisi de­mands Roar re­take tro­phy

Sunday Territorian - - SPORT -

BRIS­BANE Roar’s re­li­a­bil­ity has never been doubted, but coach John Aloisi says the time has come for the club to turn con­sis­tency into an­other run of tro­phies.

With­out sil­ver­ware since their 2014 grand fi­nal win over Western Sydney Wan­der­ers, three-time A-League champi- ons Bris­bane don’t want to waste the chance to reach a fourth de­cider in seven years when they meet Mel­bourne Vic­tory in to­day’s semi-fi­nal at AAMI Park.

“When I set foot in Bris­bane Roar (in 2015), I knew that it was a club that wants to win all the time,” Aloisi said. “That started when Ange (Postecoglou) won the first ti­tle (in 2011) and con­tin­ued since.

“The year be­fore I ar­rived they strug­gled and I made sure the play­ers re­mem­bered that they’re win­ners, that they’ve won a lot in the past, and the play­ers that we’ve brought in have shown they can win.”
