Academy coach Basha says A-League needs technical improvement

Australasian Soccer Academy coach Tony Basha says that the A-League still has some improvement in regards to players technical ability.

Basha made comment on how players in Singapore's S-League are far superior to those in Australia when it comes to the technical side of things.

"Yes the Aussie players are stronger, fitter and maybe faster but technically, I'd rate most of the Singaporean players I've seen as better than what I see from Aussie players in the A-League," he told au.fourfourtwo.com.

"On the ball they are calmer, in control, can turn out of trouble easier compared to most A-League Aussies," added Basha.

"At youth level in Singapore, they are improving all the time. Are we? And Australia has not been able to thrash Singapore in their last two games remember."
