ELSEY THRILLED TO REMAIN A RED

“It’s a good feeling knowing I’ve done everything right on and off the park with my rehab to show the new coach what type of player I am,” he said.

“I felt I fit in well with the new style that [Kurz] likes to play, playing out from the back and keeping the ball and I feel comfortable under his coaching.

“I want to obviously show Adelaide United what I can do and thank them for keeping the faith with me throughout the injury.”

“I have unfinished business to show the fans and the Club what type of player I am and that’s what I’m really looking forward to this season.”
