”I had a great time whilst with Adelaide, and we had a lot of our own success playing in the Asian Champions League final,” he said.

”I have been training with the team for over two weeks and am very impressed with the quality of the boys, especially the younger ones.

”There are some great premier league names here, it’s just a matter of mixing it all together”

Hume City coach Goran Lozanovski was excited to have a player with current A-League experience in his squad.
