Melbourne Victory captain Carl Valeri says the players have “embraced the pressure” this season and are excited for the challenges ahead.
Valeri told Carlos Alberto Diego on FNR_Football Nation Radio this morning there is “automatic pressure” when playing for Melbourne Victory and believes the players have done well to embrace it.
“We do embrace the pressure, when you come to Melbourne Victory there is automatic pressure and you can feel it all the time,” Valeri said.
Melbourne Victory host the Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday night at AAMI Park and while the Victory has experienced a late resurgence, Valeri says it remains crucial the team “do the basics well.”
“We have to worry about what we can do and what we can do is play our brand of football,” Valeri said.
The team will have to quickly turn their attention to their Asian Champions League match on Wednesday against Ulsan, before returning to play Wellington days later.
“We’re excited for the business end of the season,” Valeri said.
