New Brisbane Roar coach John Aloisi insists he is the right man to return the three-time Champions to the summit of the Hyundai A-League.
The former Socceroo, who has signed a two-year contract with the Roar, said he would build on the strengths that had made the club the benchmark of success in Australia.
“I believe this is the right place for me,” Aloisi said.
“It is a great opportunity to work with these players and this club. I’m ready and I am confident that I can help this club become successful again.”
Aloisi said he would draw on methods he witnessed successfully employed by Spanish giants FC Barcelona during a week-long stint with the four-time European Champions last year.
"One of the great things I saw at Barcelona was how the club still gets the best out of players who have won everything,’’ Aloisi said.
“Everything was competitive in training and they trained at an intensity I hadn’t seen before.
“If you can do that at training you will automatically do that in a game.
"I see parallels at the Roar as they have won a lot of silverware in recent seasons and now the challenge is for us to aspire to new heights in season 2015/16 and beyond as we reaffirm our standing as Australia's premier football club."
