Roar superstar Thomas Broich says new coach John Aloisi’s vision and meticulous planning could be the key to Brisbane Roar becoming a Hyundai A-League force again this season.
Aloisi’s reign as Roar mentor got off to a fantastic start with an emphatic 3-1 away win over Western Sydney Wanderers last Thursday night.
It was just the tonic for the club which has been battling a string of off-field distractions throughout the off-season.
And Broich believes Aloisi deserves much of the credit for being able to shield the squad from the situation and just concentrate on the football.
"He came really, really, really prepared," Broich told reporters on Tuesday.
"He's got a plan for every situation there is in a game of football. It's easy then for us to know what he expects and to actually put into place what we've been working on. It's very structured and clear.
"It certainly takes a while...we're not quite there yet. But we're improving every day now and I put that down to his overall vision and his preparation for every single video session, conditioning session, training session."
Asked how hard it’s been to forget all the financial uncertainty surrounding the club, Broich said: "To be honest, we put that behind us a long, long time ago. There's no point whinging at all.
"We can get side-tracked easily by all the stuff that's going on and what people are reading into our situation.
"As players, we shouldn't be overly concerned with all this. Our job is still out here [on the pitch]."
Despite failing to finish training on Tuesday with a knock to his ankle, the German star is in no doubt for Sunday’s top-of-the-table clash with Central Coast Mariners at Suncorp Stadium.
