A rousing speech was given by Chairman Anthony Di Pietro – with the Victory’s clear goal for 2018/19 “Bring home the trophy for another year!” Head Coach – Kevin Muscat and Captain – Kosta Barbarouse were on hand along with Melbourne Victory’s new recruits - Keisuke Honda (Japan), Ola Toivonen (Sweden), Georg Niedermeier (German), Raul Baena (Spain), Nick Ansell (Australia) and the rest of the team.
