Adelaide United’s Coolen full of praise for ‘European’ Brisbane Roar

Adelaide United coach Rini Coolen has heaped praise on A-League leaders Brisbane Roar.

The Roar marked their authority on the competition with a 4-0 win over the Reds on Saturday night despite being reduced to ten men.

Dutchman Coolen said the way Ange Postecoglou has his men playing reminds him distinctly of teams back in Europe.

“From the start of the season they have got better and better," Coolen said.

"The way they play, the movements, the transition moments, are a real high level. It's a level that belongs in Europe."

Brisbane’s record this season is now 8 wins, 5 draws and one loss from 14 matches with a goal difference of +14 which has them four points clear of Adelaide at the top of the table.
