listen to ben kantarovski discuss ernie merrick's influence
Newcastle Jets midfielder Ben Kantarovski says the faith shown by Ernie Merrick in the players has galvanised the team to succeed.
Kantarovski praised Merrick for creating a significant shift in attitude among the team, which has reflected positively on the field.
“Everyone goes out there, has fun and gives 110 per cent which shows in our results,” Kantarovski said.
Kantarovski told Carlos Alberto Diego on FNR_Football Nation Radio’s Calcio Café one Merrick’s priorities since his appointment has been the players’ welfare.
“[Merrick] is always making sure the players are happy and enjoying themselves and all the players want to play for Ernie [Merrick],” Kantarovski said.
Newcastle have praised for their reinvigoration this season after finishing tenth last season, something Kantarovski is embracing.
“It’s been unbelievable, it’s been a long time since the club has been in this position,” Kantarovski said.
