Sterjovski happy for new generation to shine
Perth Glory forward Mile Sterjovski says he won’t be coming out of international retirement to play for the Qantas Socceroos against Saudi Arabia later this month
Perth Glory forward Mile Sterjovski says he won-t be coming out of international retirement to play for the Qantas Socceroos against Saudi Arabia later this month.
Back to his brilliant best, reports have suggested Sterjovski could be picked by Qantas Socceroos Head Coach Holger Osieck for the World Cup qualifier at AMMI Stadium in Melbourne but Perth Glory-s Australian marquee says he has no interest returning.
“No, none at all, he said.
“There is plenty of good young players coming through that can do a great job and I am happy with the way my life has gone and the decisions I have made, so definitely not.”
Sterjovski-s recent form has been one of the reasons Perth Glory have surged to fourth spot on the Hyundai A-League table and the star forward is wary of Sydney FC after their loss to the Jets.
“They are looking to bounce back so we are expecting a tough game from them.”
Saturday-s clash at the Sydney Football Stadium will be the third time the two sides have met this season and the second time in a month.
“It is a bit unusual but that-s the kind of league it is, you play teams all over the place but we-re ready to play, we have been on a bit of a roll and are looking for it to continue.”
Sydney FC will be without striker Mark Bridge (ankle injury) but Socceroo Brett Emerton returns, a player Sterjovski knows extremely well from their time in the national team together.
“He-ll be a big boost for them, he-s a great player, he-ll give them a big lift.
“But if we concentrate on our game and what we-re doing things will go alright for us,” Sterjovski added.
