Aloisi sees red as play­ers hurt in Ade­laide

Sunday Herald Sun - - Soccer -

BRIS­BANE ROAR coach John Aloisi has added in­juries to in­sults from an ill-tem­pered A-League loss to Ade­laide United.

Roar striker Adam Tag­gart will soon have scans on a groin in­jury, Stefan Mauk will be mon­i­tored af­ter be­ing knocked out and French­man Eric Bautheac’s knee in­jury will also be as­sessed.

All were hurt as Bris­bane lost 2-1 to the Reds in a spite­ful clash in night.

Mauk was is­sued a red card while Ade­laide de­fender Tay­lor Re­gan was also sent off for a face grap­ple on the Roar re­cruit in a sep­a­rate in­ci­dent.

Aloisi clashed ver­bally with his Ade­laide coun­ter­part Marco Kurz in the wake of Mauk’s red card, which was is­sued while the Bris­bane mid­fielder was un­con­scious.

Mauk was knocked Ade­laide on Fri­day out af­ter a studs-up col­li­sion with Reds star Craig Good­win. As Mauk lay prone, Ade­laide play­ers tried to lift him from the turf which an­gered coach Aloisi, who made his feel­ings known to Kurz in an an­i­mated side­line ar­gu­ment.

“I was dis­ap­pointed be­cause I saw Stef Mauk un­con­scious on the floor and their play­ers go­ing around and try­ing to drag him up,” Aloisi said. “And that’s why I was try­ing to ex- plain to Marco, maybe he didn’t un­der­stand what I was say­ing.

“That is where I was dis­ap­pointed.

“I don’t ap­pre­ci­ate when a player’s wel­fare, and es­pe­cially our player, my player ... he’s knocked out and then I see their play­ers pulling him up and then they’re yelling as if it was our fault.”

Aloisi said Kurz apol­o­gised for the blow-up af­ter the game.
