Zorbas back to further ignite Sydney United


?It was great to be playing once again.
?I need to get more consecutive matches under my belt so I can further strengthen my groin but I was delighted to have played from the start.?
The 30-year-old was out for three weeks but Zorbas stated that it felt fine in the Reds? convincing 3-0 victory over Bankstown City FC at Jensen Park.
?It felt a million dollars.
?I already had ninety minutes under my belt the week before when I played for the reserve grade so that got me into the swing of things for the match against Bankstown.?
Asked what he thought of United?s devastating performance against Bankstown Zorbas replied to Football NSW.
?We dominated the match but it could have been a different story had Shane Lyons got sent off in the first ten minutes of the match.
?In a couple of our games this year we?ve created so many chances but failed to capitalise but against Bankstown we proved that we can do the business as in the space of ten minutes we scored three goals.?
Recruited by the Reds this season, Zorbas understands the pressures involved in playing with one of the NSW Premier League?s powerhouse clubs.
?When you play for Sydney United there is always constant pressure as the club only expects the best.
?It was clear from the start of the year at the Media Launch when we stated that the club wants to win everything from the Premiership, to the Championship to the McDonalds Cup.
?The team will be going all out to achieve this.?
Currently occupying first position on the NSW Premier League ladder, Zorbas indicated that a lot has to do with not just how well the team has been playing but with the management of David Zdrilic and co.
?David?s been excellent for us.
?I didn?t know what to expect when I signed this year as I knew him only as a player but as a manager he?s done great so far.
?Training sessions are awesome and tactically he is pretty sound as he has played under some big coaches in his time as a footballer. I have to also say that our assistant coach Richard (Plesa) has also been instrumental and has given us a good combination outside of the pitch.?
All eyes will be firmly poised this Sunday as Sydney United entertain Blacktown City FC at Edensor Park in what many believe will be a game not to be missed between two Premiership chasing sides.
?There?s no doubt about it every time you face Blacktown you are in for a very physical battle.
?With the likes of players such as Kain Rastall, Luke Roodenburg, Jordan and Tyler Simpson, they?re a team that always gives one hundred percent.
?I understand that they?re on a bit of a downer after their loss to Sutherland last week but that?s good medicine in bouncing back so we need to be on our toes for this.
?Our confidence is sky high at the moment and we want to continue our momentum and hope to bring home the three points in front of our fans.?
The former Sydney Olympic and Parramatta Power player has vowed that he hopes to remain injury free for the remainder of the 2010 NSW Premier League season and wants to cement his spot in the starting eleven of the Reds side.
?These are certainly my main aims along with winning silverware.
?There?s still a long way to go but I am confident we can do the business.?
Sydney United tack on Blacktown City FC this Sunday at Sydney United Sports Centre with kick-off set for 4pm.
