Mark Rudan says it is important he gets the best out of Western Sydney's star-studded squad after replacing Carl Robinson as the Wanderers coach.
The Wanderers are priced at 6/5 to finish in the top six of the A-League but they have won just one game so far this season which ultimately resulted in the sacking of Robinson.
Rudan inherits a strong squad that includes the likes of Jack Rodwell and Tomer Hemed but they were unable to put it together on the pitch and that will be the new coach's number one aim.
The former Western United boss is at a loss to explain why Wanderers have not been able to perform this season but says he should soon find out.
"From the outside it's tough (to say)," Rudan said when asked what Western Sydney's issues are. "I can only comment from what I've seen. The personnel are there but only until I get to work will I find out what those answers are.
"You don't win games on paper. Names are just that. It's important to understand each individual and get the most out of them.
"We want to make sure we create a team with values that pertain to the area that the club represents."
Wanderers won the A-League and AFC Champions League titles under the leadership of Tony Popovic but have been on a horror run since then and are now on their fifth coach in five years.
Rudan is delighted to have the job and is now looking to restore former glories.
"It would be nice to try and find our way back up the mountain," Rudan added. "I'm extremely privileged and honoured because this is one of the big four clubs in the league, irrespective of where we are at right now as a football club and over the last few years.
"There's pressure that's associated with all of that and I'm very pleased to be here."
