“I like to make up for my height disadvantage on the pitch by being loud and imposing by dominating the talk from the back,” the Western Sydney Wanderers number one explained."
“I may not have a large physical presence out there but if you watch the Wanderers play you will no doubt hear me communicating with the boys for the entire 90 minutes."
“It is one of my strengths that sets me apart from other keepers”
“One thing you notice immediately is the intensity at each and every session."
“We would complete a series of keeping drill circuits lasting for three minutes that would leave you absolutely gasping for air and drain your energy reserves to empty.”
“The training is quite different in the UK with greater emphasis placed on fitness and intensity in sessions over technique.”
“He is at all of my games and I love the chats we have in the long car trip home as we talk about what went right and wrong during the course of the match."

“No big deal but I would love to keep for Arsenal in the EPL!”
