A-League 2019/20 news: Preview, ultimate guide, teams, transfers, predictions, verdict, latest

Published

ADELAIDE UNITED

Last season’s finish: 4th (eliminated in semi-finals)

This season’s predicted finish: 7th

The star: Riley McGree. New coach Gertan Verbeek’s first signing brings an X-Factor (remember THAT scorpion kick?) – but the 20-year-old needs to perform week-in-week-out for Adelaide to succeed this season. In 30 appearances for Melbourne City last year, McGree banged in eight goals and four assists. If he can prove himself capable of leading this Adelaide side, he will almost certainly earn a maiden Socceroos cap.

Round 1

The boss: Brutally honest, Gertjan Verbeek is the latest in a long line of Dutch masterminds to grace Australian football. Don’t let his dishevelled appearance fool you – Verbeek has previously coached players such as Klaas Jan Hunteelar, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Aussie Brett Holman in a storied coaching career. Expect tactical flexibility, a big focus on youth development, and relentless perfectionism.
