The 31-year-old has had his fair share of disappointments in the pursuit of silverware, missing out on an ALM double in 2016. While the midfielder also came agonisingly close overseas with Kaizer Chiefs.

The Chiefs finished two points off the South African league title and lost the CAF Champions League final during Baccus’ time there.

“Every year you go in thinking this year is going to be a good year for you,” Baccus said.  

“Everywhere I’ve been I’ve been very fortunate to get close, but to get over the line is a different story.”

The Bulls’ Australia Cup triumph in early October saw Baccus finally pick up a winner’s medal. The early trophy has left Baccus hungry for more with the ALM premiership and championship up for grabs over the next months. 

“I’d like to win something again whether it be a grand final or the league, but I think the league is probably more important for me,” he explained. 

“I think the team that’s consistent over 26 games is probably the best team in the league.”

The former Western Sydney Wanderer praised the professionalism around the club after recent off-field changes.

Baccus said the availability of high-quality physio and massage therapists has been very beneficial, while impressive gym and training facilities are also aiding the preparation for matches this season. 

“With the new board and the new people that came in, the club’s really been good,” he said. 

“They’ve given us everything from day one.

“I think every player wants to be somewhere where it makes it easy for them to do their job accordingly.

“It just makes it nice, going into training every morning; you want to wake up, and you want to train, and you want to do all the right things because your footballing career is not long.”

With a sturdy platform off the pitch and some early success on it, Baccus believes the Bulls are a chance to mix it with the best this season. 

“To be honest, I want to win it [the ALM]. I want to win everything,” he said.

“You can see the group is just willing to work and listen and do whatever we need to do to hopefully get another trophy or hopefully be there or thereabouts.

Baccus came off the bench for the final 22 minutes of Macarthur’s scoreless stalemate in their ALM opener against Brisbane.

The side will play their first home game of the season in round two against Adelaide United.
