Transfer flurry, increases Hearts depth
Melbourne Heart’s Coach is more than happy with the strength of his side, after the return of Australian left back Aziz Behich after a loan spell at Bursaspor.
Aloisi has been busy in the transfer window this summer, signing four new players, including former Liverpool and Leeds United winger Harry Kewell.
The 37-year-old believes the new additions to his squad, midfielder Massimo Murdocca, Dutch defender Rob Wielaert and left midfielder Iain Ramsay, will enable him to play more attacking football.
He told footballaustrailia.com: “I’ve got options, which is great, it’s always good to have options – I can play Iain a little bit higher up. I’ve got quite a few wingers and a few full backs so the squad is looking strong.
“We still need a couple of players, I still need a midfielder and a striker and I think once we get that together our squad will be full.”
As well as Kewell, Aloisi’s off season signings are a talented bunch, midfielder Massimo Murdocca racked up 163 appearances for Brisbane Roar, Dutch defender Rob Wielaert whose career has included stints at PSV Eindhoven, Ajax and FC Twente and former Adelaide United midfielder Iain Ramsay.
Bolstered by these new additions, Aloisi will be hoping to build on last years ninth place finish, the worst in the club’s history.
