Kevin Muscat Calls for Attractive Football from A-League Teams

Kevin Muscat is of the opinion that the Australian A-League has to become much more attractive in order to become the best football league in the side of the world. After the tremendous winning came to an end with the loss against Perth Glory, Melbourne Victory have the chance to close the gap on Melbourne City in the next few weeks. City are only two points ahead in the third place. Even though this was a frustrating result for the team, Kevin Muscat says that he was quite disappointed with the defensive approach of Perth Glory.

After having witnessed Melbourne Victory score five against the likes of Central Coast coming into this game, it was fair to expect a defensive performance from Perth Glory. However, Kevin Muscat did not expect such a poor performance from the hosts going forward. Perth Glory were even unable to enjoy 50% of the ball in the 90 minutes. They managed to score the only goal of the game just before half-time to deal a major blow for victory. Andy Keogh came up with the only goal of the game. Kevin Muscat says that it is the responsibility of the A-League to play a more attractive football in order to start attracting more top players to the league. He says that if things going with a defensive approach, it may not be good for the league.

“It has become sport in this country to highlight the negatives and not have any solutions, but one way to get people back is to play entertaining football.Everyone has a responsibility and a job to make that happen. I think we all have to look at ourselves and we certainly will because the game just took forever to get restarted.It just dragged on forever and slowed the game down. That’s the referee who has to speed the game up and make it a spectacle,” said Muscat.
