Remy Siemsen soaring in Sydney FC return

-

After a season at crosstown rivals Western Sydney Wanderers, Remy Siemsen says she is happy to be back in sky blue.

The 20-year-old striker reignited her Sydney FC career with a blistering performance in the Big Blue, scoring two goals in their 3-0 win over Melbourne Victory.

Her pace and intelligence up top will be a mouthwatering sight for Matildas coach Ante Milicic for future selections.

For now however, Siemsen is only concerned with consistent minutes this season.

“I really did miss Sydney FC last season, she said.

“It was a really tough season for me coming off the bench and not really playing as much.

“It affected me mentality.”

Siemsen says moving to another club at such a young age is something she has no regrets over.

“I am only 20 so I am glad I had a change of scenery so early, she said.

“I learnt a lot last season – mainly not everything is going to be easy.”

In the opening fixture, the young striker formed an impressive partnership with Matilda Caitlin Foord, with the latter providing two assists for Siemsen.

“She has been someone I have looked up to since I was about 10 years old. She said.

“We started to click last week at training.

“Hopefully we can continue the up-top relationship because it definitely worked today.”

Sydney coach Ante Juric says he is proud of the youngster.

“This is why we brought her back, he said.

“I did not want her to leave last year but she is back now.”

“I hope she has a great season because she deserves everything.”

The result over Melbourne will be pleasing for Juric but insists repeated results are the way forward, linking back to Sydney’s form slump after the first round last season.

“Hopefully we start a lot quicker, he said.

“We won (the first game) last year and then lost the next three.”

The defending champions will play Adelaide United in their next match where there will be a greater insight into how both Siemsen and Sydney will perform this campaign.
