Adelaide United captain Eugene Galekovic has thanked the club’s supporters for their show of respect prior to Saturday night’s 2-2 draw with Western Sydney Wanderers.
Home fans unfurled a banner depicting the legendary goalkeeper hoisting aloft last season’s Grand Final trophy.
The former Melbourne Victory man is yet to confirm his future beyond the current AFC Champions League campaign and says he is unaware of any movement on a new contract.
“It was nice. The supporters have been great ever since I came,” Galekovic told Fox Sports.
“I came from a rival and they have supported me since day one so I couldn’t be more pleased.
“I’m not sure what’s happening [with the contract].
“The season is over [but] we’ve still got the ACL to worry about. I’m not sure [about the future].”
Galekovic produced a trademark low penalty stop to preserve Adelaide’s two-goal buffer at half-time but could do little to prevent Steven Lustica from later equalising from the spot.
“It was a pity I couldn’t save the second one,” the 35-year-old said.
“I think at 2-0 we should have done better. We tried to finish the game off [but] we didn’t and credit to Western Sydney, they came back and they stole a point.”
