Australian Football: Zadkovich fuming as Glory hit for six

Perth Glory interim coach Ruben Zadkovich is promising repercussions after his side suffered another humiliating defeat on Saturday.

Glory, who sit rock bottom of the A-League, went down 6-0 against Western United, and Zadkovich was far from happy.

Senior players criticised

Glory’s troubles have been well documented. They have an injury list as long as your harm and are having to field a host of young players to get a team out on the park.

The amount of travelling has not helped matters either but Zadkovich was not for making excuses after the game.

Glory succumbed against a Western side who were on a mission to bounce back following a 4-1 defeat against Wellington Phoenix last week.

Lachie Wales was the hero for Western with a hat-trick, while further goals from Dylan Pierias, Aleksandar Prijovic, and Dylan Wenzel-Halls completed the rout.

Zadkovich fuming

Zadkovich hit out at the performance of the senior players in the side and suggested their effort and work-rate was not good enough. And he has promised repercussions for them.

"Certain individuals didn't want to go about the game the way they need to at this level and it cost the team," he told reporters after the game. "And I'm not talking about the young and inexperienced players. I'm talking about some of our seasoned professionals.

"When the chips are down and things get really difficult, you've got to want to fight and you've got to compete. Some players didn't.

"I'm bitterly disappointed. I'm fuming. And there will be repercussions for some people."
