Caltex Socceroo star Aaron Mooy's early success at Huddersfield Town should serve as a blueprint for other Australians heading to the Championship, according to Massimo Luongo.
Mooy has started in Huddersfield's opening five matches in all competitions this season, with the Terriers leading England's second tier with three wins and a draw heading into Saturday's clash with Wolves.
Huddersfield secured Mooy on loan from Manchester City for the 2016-17 season, and Luongo - who plays at fellow Championship club Queens Park Rangers - reckons it's an ideal match for his fellow Caltex Socceroos midfielder.
"The Championship's tough. If you go into the wrong team, you'll go missing for a long time and I think he's [Mooy] gone into the right team," Luongo told Goal Australia.
"He's gone to the perfect team where he can showcase what he wants, and it suits his style perfectly.
"He likes to get on the ball, they want to play out from the back, they want to get the ball moving on the deck, so I think he'll be a vital player for them this season."
With former Borussia Dortmund II coach David Wagner having joined Huddersfield in November, the Terriers have adapted a Jurgen Klopp-esque philosophy.
A playing style that was ideal for Mooy, who has been a revelation at the Yorkshire-based club.
"[Wagner's] come in and from what I've known he's implemented his style into their game. They like to pass it a lot," Luongo said.
"It's a quite a fluid team in the way they play.
"They came to QPR last year and they played really well. They sort of popped us at times and stuff like that.
"From what I can tell you, I think 'Azza' [Mooy] will fit perfectly into that team."
Mooy is in his second stint playing in England, with the Sydney-born playmaker having spent four years at Bolton Wanderers before eventually returning to the A-League in 2012 via St Mirren in Scotland.
