COOPER SAYS ‘ON YOU GO LUONGO’
SWINDON could yet be playing Championship football next year, but one player unlikely to be part of the squad is Massimo Luongo.
The 22-year-old has stated his desire to find a new challenge, and Robins boss Mark Cooper has resigned himself to losing the midfielder.
Australian international Luongo, who was named player of the tournament at this year’s Asian Cup, has been a key cog for Swindon this term.
“If it’s time for him to move on, then it’s time for him to move on,” said Cooper of the ex-Spurs youngster. “Massimo is obviously a very ambitious young man.
“He’s been and played on the international stage and done very well – he’ll know that there will be eyes being cast over his play.
“He’s got to keep playing, and playing well, if he is going to go and get the best move that he possibly can.
“I’ll tell him to keep playing and what a way to leave, if you are going to, by winning the play-offs and getting the club promoted.”
