“I always notice a change in players when they return from a stint training with the senior Wanderers squad,” said Morgan.
“There is a look of intense concentration in their eyes but never any cockiness or increase in bravado."
“When they train with the likes of Shinji Ono, Matthew Spiranovic, Youssouf Hersi and Aaron Mooy they see how hard these players continue to work in every session despite their success and this ethic seems to rub off immediately."
“Shinji Ono has been a wonderful player to have at the Wanderers not only for the senior squad but for the young players who experience the high standards of professionalism he lives by. He’s a player that always sees areas of improvement in his game despite his standing in the game.”
“Exposure to the senior team and Young Socceroos squad for some has certainly encouraged players to lead and communicate more effectively in the team environment.”
