Bruno Fornaroli | The Return

Bruno Fornaroli | The Return

“I can’t wait to be back at AAMI Park and feel all the love the fans give me.”

After more than a month away, Bruno Fornaroli is back in Melbourne and rearing to go ahead of Saturday night’s clash against Macarthur.

Spending the last five weeks with the Socceroos, the 36-year-old striker played every match in the Asian Cup.

“It was a great experience even if we didn’t reach what we wanted because, of course, our goal was to win the Asian Cup,” he said.

“But you know, you learn from every situation and I learnt a lot from the players and the staff over in Qatar. Playing at international level is very different and I’m bringing back some amazing experiences.

“I’m happy to be back around the boys and what happened in Qatar doesn’t change my desire to win here.

“As I’ve said before, I want to win my first league title here and all the experience that I collected from the Asian Cup, I will try and share around the Club if it means we are one step closer to a trophy.”

Looking ahead to Saturday’s clash with Macarthur, Fornaroli said he’s fit and ready to go.

“Look, I’m feeling well. Of course little bit jet lagged at the moment, but training and being here around the boys has helped me a lot,” he explained.

“But I feel great, I feel fit and I can’t wait to be back.”

The 36-year-old is having a career-best season, leading the league’s Golden Boot race even after missing almost five weeks of action.

Our boys in blue have only won one of their last six matches without Fornaroli, drawing the remaining five, and while Bruno says the team can still improve, he believes the team have “been in great form”.

“Of course, we need to improve, we need to keep building,” he explained.

“I watched every game and the guys are in great form. We just need to turn it around a little bit more and the wins will start to come.

“We need to start from this weekend back home against the Bulls and with the fans behind us, we can win.

“I can’t wait to be back at AAMI Park and feel all the love the fans give me.”
