Happiness and relief for Guillermo Amor

-

After eight weeks without a win in the A-League the drought is finally over for the Reds.

Adelaide coach Guillermo Amor was absolute buzzing with the victory over Perth Glory post game, an infectious smile lighting up the press room. A spark of happiness was accompanied by a look of relief.

“For me this result is very important.

“It is important for Adelaide, important for its players, its people, for everyone, for the city.

“I am very happy today.

“Today everyone is happy so therefore I am happy”.

United displayed some outstanding football throughout the evening and created plenty of opportunities in front of goal.

Dynamic midfielder Marcelo Carrusca made his long awaited return to the starting lineup and contributed significantly to the exciting football on display.

Amor admitted that although Marcelo’s form had been down, he never lost faith in the player’s ability.

“I certainly never lost confidence in Marcelo.

“I will always have a lot of trust in my good players.

“We thought that Marcelo would be a key player in tonight’s game…and we were proven right”.

Perth coach Kenny Lowe was bitterly disappointed with the result however admitted the outcome was fair.

“We didn’t deserve anything because we didn’t do enough good things to get anything out of it.

“At the critical points of the game we didn’t do enough right.

“We’ve just got to work harder and try harder to convert and turn things around for us”.

Incredibly the result sees Adelaide leapfrog Perth and Central Coast Mariners into eighth position with an exciting set of fixtures to come.

The Reds firstly host Sydney FC next Friday night in a game Amor hopes can really kick start their season.

“Hopefully we can get another win and build some momentum”.

Meanwhile Perth faces Central Coast in a bottom of the table affair that will hopefully be as exciting as the one Glory have just played.
