Melbourne Victory launched its 2018/19 season in style at Wednesday’s Victory in Business luncheon, presented by AGL Energy.
The playing squad for the new season was presented to a packed room at Crown’s Palladium.
Head Coach Kevin Muscat said the challenge of working with a new group of players is one he is relishing.
“It’s been an exciting time for us as staff to sit down and try and work out the best way possible for the current group of players to play [together],” Muscat said.
“Winning is the objective, we’ll work out a way that is going to best suit us and in the Victory manner, I want it to be exciting, I want it to be attacking.
“It’s taking time, it’s going to take some time but we’ll be ready next week and one thing’s for sure, we’ll keep progressing and getting better as the season goes on.”

Di Pietro had no illusions about Victory’s ambitions for the 2018/19 season.
“We remain firm in our resolve to once again be there on Grand Final Day,” Di Pietro said.
“Strong is our desire to continue to improve, to raise the bar.
“We prepare, we persist, we improve and together as one, we succeed our way, the Victory way.”
Proudly presented by AGL, Victory in Business is Australia’s largest sporting networking group outside of game day.
