Perhaps Ante back to Victory to mentor Lawrence Thomas?

 

Jets should pick him up now Birighitti is gone, he's better than Kennedy.

He'd be a good leader for the re-build of that club.

Would add a lot of steel to their club (and with the likes of Labi, Mullen and Poljak there's some familiarity with personnel). Also would be okay for him re close to family and perhaps options for coaching transition.

 

Glad he didn't end up at the smurfs, but if he had gone would've been no sweat off my brow. He's won his plaudits and made history with us...whatever he has done or will do since he left WSW is his own responsibility. Good luck to him whatever happens

did not see him at the smurfs trial match last night.

They've signed Vukovic anyway, Covic's time at the Smurfs is done.

So what is happening with Ante? It was always a case of him training with the smurfs & potentially getting a contract. Now that the reserve goal keeper spot has been taken, what next for Ante?
