Burchell returns to Red Devils
From back page “He has new teammates to learn about, they need to learn about him and he had to learn about their structure.
“There were a lot of factors in his decision.
“If he hadn’t had the injury I would have expected him to stay and play the year out because he can certainly play at that level.
“But it was a combination of things and knowing we are a chance at the league and cup titles might have helped us as well.”
And while Antonello is rapt to have his leading striker back, he is also excited to see what Arias, 22, is capable of having watched impressive vision on him through the internet.
Arias, a centre forward throughout his fledgling career, will be used in attack for the Red Devils’ side sorely needing an attacking leader.
“He is only a little fellah,” he said.
“I’ve seen a few videos of him in action; he’s strong over the ball and a really good finisher.
“I would expect him to go well for us – he is really what we need.
“He’ll play on Sunday for sure.”
