Berisha adds 100 wins to his resume

-

Western United goal scorer Besart Berisha is ready to add 100 wins to his grand resume of accomplishments.

A part of four championships during his time at Brisbane Roar and Melbourne Victory Berisha is the testament of a fierce competitor.

The Kosovar international reached 100 wins in the A-League when United overcame Roar 2-0 on Friday to add another achievement under his belt.

After scoring two goals against Melbourne Victory last weekend, all eyes were on Berisha to sink another of his former clubs as an addition to all his wins.

United coach Mark Rudan said he was sure if anyone could achieve the accomplishment it was Berisha.

“I’ve said it before he’s a winner and he’s a competitor,” he said.

“He’s always the one in training driving set-pieces and giving everything a go,”

“Our win last week was great at creating some momentum for us, so it could be a great win for Bes and for the club.”

There seems to be an assured goal clash between Brisbane and United, especially considering there have been 20 goals scored in the Roar’s last five games.

The Green and Blacks have proven they can find their response after falling a goal behind. As they did in their 3-1 win against Victory last week.

Rudan is confident his whole squad would recreate the same magic they demonstrated against Victory before the match against Brisbane.

“We were very structured last week and will be this week so we’re hoping to emulate the same response,” he said.

Ex-Roar hitman Berisha is clearly a man in form and ready for the challenge. He proved his appetite against his former clubs had not gone anywhere with his goal against Roar.

This week’s three-point gain took Rudan’s United to a two-game win streak, keeping them third in the opening stages of the A-League’s round 10.
