Aloisi disappointed with Adelaide loss


Melbourne Heart FC Head Coach John Aloisi couldn’t hide his disappointment after yesterday’s 1-0 loss against Adelaide United.

John Aloisi couldn’t hide his disappointment after yesterday-s 1-0 loss against Adelaide United, as Melbourne Heart FC-s Head Coach lamented his side’s fourth loss of the season.

However, Aloisi is heartened by the fact that he has plenty of ammunition coming back into his ranks, including captain Fred and teenagers Ben Garuccio and David Vrankovic who will return from Qantas Young Socceroos duties.

The Red and White faced a strong Adelaide outfit with seven squad members missing through unavailability and injury.

“Players have to fight for their place a bit more,” Aloisi said.

“It was a disappointing loss, because we gave them the game.

“Did we give them the goal? After they scored the goal we stopped playing, stopped moving, stopped competing and that-s the thing I-m disappointed about.

“We lost games earlier on in the year against Western Sydney and also against the Mariners, but at least we were in the game.

“You can go a goal down, but you can-t stop playing and that-s what I-m disappointed in.

“We made that mistake and then it was all over.”

Aloisi said that his side didn-t stretch the Reds often enough and needed to show more desire to win the ball.

“I-m not happy about it; they need to make sure it doesn-t happen again,” Aloisi said
