Adelaide United bring in another foreigner in the way of Dutchman Slory

Adelaide United have brought in their second international signing in the space of a week with news that Dutch attacker Andwele Slory.

The 28-year old has joined the Reds on a guest player contract for the remainder of the season after most recently being with Levski Sofia of the Bulgarian top flight.

Slory, who has represented Holland on two occasions, has also had stints with Telstar, Excelsior and Feyenoord in his homeland as well as a short spell with English Premier League club West Bromwich Albion when they were in the Championship last season.

Adelaide coach Rini Coolen knows Slory well from his Dutch Eredivisie days and says he will bring plenty to the Adelaide line-up.

“We were looking for an extra attacker who can play as a winger and bring some speed into the game, also someone with experience and that’s what Slory has,” Coolen said.

“I know him from when he played in Holland, he was playing with one of the best clubs in Holland, Feyenoord, and he also played a few games for the national team.

“We were looking for a player who could help us directly, and to be honest there aren’t that many players available of that age and that quality, so I was surprised when his name came up,” Coolen added.

“He’s still only 28 and for him, he just needs to come and play a good season somewhere and he’s looking forward to doing that with us. If we can get Slory back to how he was playing in Holland a year and a half ago, then he will be a fantastic player for our league.”
