Good football will grow A-League: Aloisi

  • Good football will grow A-League: Aloisi

Brisbane Roar coach John Aloisi said he meant every word of his rant against 'anti-football' as the A-League ladder leaders prepare for another afternoon of frustration in Newcastle on Saturday.

A day after Jets coach Scott Miller suggested Aloisi might wish to take back his fiery comments after Brisbane's 1-1 draw with Melbourne City last week, the Roar coach repeated his view that eradicating ugly tactics will help grow the game.

But he also said it was up to teams like Brisbane find a way to play through opposition sides who set up to niggle and frustrate, as the Jets have shown a tendency to do this season.

"I've said a lot about the cynical fouls and that - I don't want to go on about it again and again, because it becomes a little bit boring and people and people will think I'm just complaining," Aloisi said.

"At the moment I just now have to focus on what we're doing and trying to make sure we play the style of football that we've been set out to do since the first day of pre-season.

"For us, we believe that's the winning way. Others will have their opinion and their way of playing."

The Roar travel to Newcastle later on Friday ahead of the clash at Hunter Stadium
