Andre Caro says that his team’s latest signing – former Hume player Ubedye Cicek – will thrive in his new environment.
Cicek confirmed on Saturday that he would leave Hume FC and play for Pascoe Vale FC next season.
His first game for the club will be this Sunday in the Foz Cup tournament.
Caro confirmed that Cicek has trained with the Pascoe Vale squad over the past week and says that he has fit into the side very well.
“Ubedye and I have kept in touch since he played at a senior level and I always wanted to work with him,” Caro told SeriesFutsal.com.
“He has massive potential, he has the talent and a will to win as well as the desire to improve his game and learn more about futsal.
“We need to be patient with him – it might take some time for him to learn our systems, but once he has got his head around it, he will be able to stand out and use his natural ability.”
Cicek, regarded as one of the most best goal-sneaks in the league, said that his priority was to concentrate on his futsal and leave Hume behind due to his team’s outdoor soccer priorities.
“Futsal is my priority and our main players prioritise NPL (the National Premier League),” Cicek told website Sport on the Globe.
“I need to commit to a team focused solely on futsal.
“If I want to take futsal seriously and get further, I need to push my limits, and I can only do that with a team that pushes its players further up.”
The Foz Cup will take place this Sunday at the Thomastown Futsal Oz Stadium, with the first game kicking off at 3pm.
