Adelaide United unlikely to secure marquee player

Adelaide United will almost certainly go into the 2009/10 A-League season without a marquee player.

Adelaide United will almost certainly go into the 2009/10 A-League season without a marquee player.

The Reds have not found the right man to undertake their starring role but coach Aurelio Vidmar believes it is not a major issue.

"At this stage we don't have a marquee and we probably won't get a marquee. They are all the little issues we have so we'll have to make do with the best person available," he said.

"It's just a name, a title - marquee player - what does it mean - nothing.

"Our marquee last year didn't play so is it such a big deal? No. We'd like to have another person as a marquee player absolutely but at this point it's difficult."
