FC have formed one of the most enviable attacks in
the A-League, with coach Steve Corica set to be spoilt
for options at the business end of the season.
the trio of Adam Le Fondre, Bobo and Kosta Barbarouses
to be at his disposal, Sydney look like they will
take some stopping to be denied the title again this
Le Fondre Nearing Return
striker Le Fondre is set to return for his second
stint with the A-League outfit, having last played
back in March with Mumbai City in the Indian Super
League. The 34-year-old, who has played for the likes
of Reading, Cardiff City and Bolton in his career,
has already won two A-League Grand Finals in the past
two seasons with the men in blue.
again Sydney are in the mix to win the title this
season and are among
the favourites in the A-League betting to lift
the trophy. Having a player of Le Fondre's experience
in the squad will only be a boost for Corica, who
already has talented stars at the top end of the field.
Bobo Partnership Excites Le Fondre
favourite among the fans, Bobo himself is in a second
stint with Sydney after a two-year spell with the
New South Wales outfit between 2016-18. The Brazilian
scored an impressive 42 goals in 57 games for the
Sky Blues, and is now back with the club. Le Fondre,
who himself scored 45 goals in 68 appearances in his
first stint, is looking forward to linking
up with the South American for the first time.
about the chance to work alongside Bobo, Le Fondre
said it was going to be an "exciting partnership".
The Englishman also revealed he is looking forward
to playing with Barbarouses, in what is set to be
an intimidating front three for Sydney.
Decisions to be Made for Corica
decision on what to do with this abundance of talent
will now fall
on the shoulders of coach Corica. The former Sky
Blues midfielder has suggested he could look to field
all three forwards in a 4-3-3 formation, while there
is of course potential to have just two upfront.
run of draws in April saw Sydney continue to stall
in their bid to climb to the top of the table. Corica
stated his side were in need of more goals, and that's
why Le Fondre was returning to the harbour city. Sydney
will be hoping Le Fondre will be able to hit the ground
running, and swiftly build up his partnerships with
Barbarouses and Bobo over the coming weeks.
shaping up to be an intriguing end to the A-League
season, and if Sydney are to make it an impressive
three titles on the bounce, it's likely Corica's front
three will have played a massive part.
