‘You need to work backwards’ – Yorke issues Arzani warning 

-

Macarthur FC coach Dwight Yorke has demanded more of the same from Daniel Arzani after the Socceroos hopeful turned in a dazzling display off the bench on Friday night.

The Bulls succumbed to their fifth defeat of the season, going down narrowly to Central Coast Mariners in a feisty affair. The damage was done early on following a lacklustre first-half display that sent Macarthur into half-time two goals down. 

Yorke brought Arzani on at the break, hoping he could galvanise a turnaround for the hosts. Arzani has been left out in the cold of late, failing to start any of Macarthur’s past four games and having to settle for limited game time off the bench.

It was a much different picture in the second period, with a rejuvenated Macarthur making it an uncomfortable 45 minutes for the Mariners and almost snatching a point. 

Arzani grabbed the assist for Matthew Millar’s goal just before the hour mark and then carried on with an inspired performance – reminiscent of his dribbling delight as a youngster at Melbourne City. 

The winger’s committing of defenders looked to have earned the Bulls a penalty late on in the match, however, appeals were waived away, much to the dismay of the Macarthur players.

He thought he nicked a point for Macarthur in the final five minutes as his bending shot sailed just past the post. 

Such displays have been few and far between for Arzani in his first season back in the A-League Men since he lit it up five years ago. Yorke explained how Arzani needs to offer more, but praised the cameo of his player.

“He is a name that everyone wants to see play because he’s a real entertainer and also a really good quality player,” Yorke explained.

“But that just doesn’t get you into a football team at any level. You need to be better. You need to work backwards and produce the goods.

“Hopefully, he can get himself back into the team and understand what it takes to be playing football week in – week out.”

The defeat to the Mariners carries on a patchy season for the Bulls, with the side only managing back-to-back wins on one occasion this season.

They’ll travel to face Adelaide United next Friday night in another game that could prove crucial in the fight for finals football.
