    Description: A journeyman winger with extensive experience in the Dutch leagues. Hersi started the pre-season slowly but with more match fitness and time to adjust to the league he become one of the key performers for the Wanderers in their inaugural season. His absence from the Wanderers squad is an immediate boost to the opposition. His second season was less of an impact in terms of goals scored, but he was still a key player in attack. He left the club after 2013/14 to join Perth Glory.

Yeah he gives it his all, Cole style. He's just gotta watch the silly cards, he seems to get too emotional. I'm sure popas had a word.

 

I'd rather a player wearing his heart on his sleeve and giving his all than a esfc player.

I hope Hersi is in the next batch of players the club resigns. He adds a lot of skill and guile to a right sided attack and works real well with Polenz.

Well done Youssouf today against the Roar!  Scored an excellent goal and worked tirelessly throughout the game as usual!

Hersi has definitely been our best player this season, his run from the back, down the flanks with the ball and having the ability and confidence to finish it off with the goal is something that I havent seen an a player in the A-League do.

What can i say about him, he's just an amazing player. Scored 2 and assisted both Bridge and Poljak. I just love watching him play

I think its awesome that a journeyman footballer like Hersi who has had his fair share of problems and injuries.

He has finally found his feet and a settled club where he can thrive and get the best out of himself.

 

I hope he can stay for a few seasons more because he gives everything for the club.

 

 

One small negative was when he tried to lash out while he was on the ground, I think it might have been against Djite but I cant remember.

It amounted to nothing, but he needs to  get that out of his game asap.

Awsome news!!!

I know he's 30. But i reckon with his lengthy injury and our shorter seasons he could potentially have another year or 2 in him on top of his new contract.

 

Next season we may even see a better player now that he is getting much fitter and his body has grown stronger in recovery.

STOKED!!!

 

Has been one of, if not the, standout player this season.

 

Always a gamble taking on a player after a two year lay off. but he (and the support staff) have obviously worked very hard at getting him back into form. I think we are seeing a glimpse of what he is capable off in the last few weeks. absolutely tearing it up. His pressure on the opposition back line is second to none. His combination work with bridge has improved greatly in recent weeks, hopefully we'll see a similar improvement in the way he plays with kresinger too. If that can happen our attack will be unstoppable.  

 

I love how he always credits the fans as a source of motivation. After the heart game he said the crowd was the 11th player after polenz was sent off and then again in the article above...lots of love for the supporters. So keep up the good work guys and we'll see hersi continue his good work.
