Morgan Schneiderlin’s debut could take center stage as Wanderers meet United
Western Sydney Wanderers boss Marko Rudan has revealed that Morgan Schneiderlin’s debut will in fact be against Wester United as the former French international is in good condition to compete.
“He’s in good form, his body is in good shape as well,” Rudan told reporters.
“Jet lag is normal, it’s a long way from Europe to Australia but he’s finding his way in that time difference and … acclimatizing to our ruthless summers.
“He’s looking good and in contention to not only be in the squad but to start the game.”
The Wanderers have struggled massively this season, winning only one in 8 games recently, and the signing of a once $44 million signing Schneiderlin could just be the factor that turns things around.
Having drawn against Central Coast in a thrilling match that ended 2-2, Marko Rudan promises a bright future for Wanderers ahead of Morgan Schneiderlin’s debut.
“It was great to be part of one of the most exciting games this year … we’re doing everything on our side we can to ensure we get our fans coming in droves,” Rudan said.
“That’s what we’re bringing in this week and the addition of Morgan as well to the team has just brightened things up.
“We want to put on a good show once again and stay in that position we’ve been all season.”
The reigning Champions Western United have also been struggling recently but coach John Aloisi is hoping to get a win against Wanderers and get closer to the top of the league:
“We could go just two points behind the Wanderers who had a great start to the season and they’re sitting third, we know how close it is,” he told reporters.
“If we can go on a good run, we know we’ll be in contention come finals time … we know we’re building, we’re getting to the level we need to be at to really compete and make sure we get the points we need to be in the finals.”
