Wanderers need a big signing says Tim Cahill

-

A hero for football across Western Sydney, Tim Cahill turned momentary villain on Friday night when he scored in Melbourne City colours.

“It’s good to score, overall it’s been a long time since I’ve been back playing domestically in Sydney and it was a nice feeling,” Cahill said post-game.

Many Red & Black supporters would have been hoping to see Cahill in their club’s colours prior to his move to City and though it wasn’t to be, Cahill believes the Wanderers do need a big signing.

“They’ve grown a great brand here and they need to keep growing it and believing in it and hopefully they can get some big signings to reward the fans for the support because that’s what it’s crying out for in my opinion,” Cahill said.

Signing autographs after the match, Cahill saw first hand the sheer appetite for football Western Sydney fans have and enjoyed momentarily quenching it.

“I play on the other team and after signing autographs for an hour plus it’s a nice feeling for me to spend time with the kids and some families,” he said.

A momentous return to his hometown, Cahill didn’t let any emotions effect him prior to the game but spoke with genuine admiration for the Wanderers afterwards.

“There wasn’t too much emotion before the game because I’m not someone that gets quite emotional when it comes to football, I keep it very professional but it’s awesome to come back to this place especially with how much the club’s grown and what they’ve done, they should be proud,” he said.

After scoring to put City ahead in the 55th minute, Cahill was greeted to a chorus of boos something he wasn’t too phased about.

“It’s part and parcel, half the people booing are probably my mates I grew up with at school or my cousins and their friends.”
