''Now with the Heart it's going to be even bigger, the rivalry. This is what the A-League wants and needs, to have two sides from Melbourne going head to head. Hatred is a big word, but I think there's going to be a lot of hatred there.''
Aloisi was confident that Melbourne would be able to handle another team and said it would be a great thing for football in Victoria and throughout the nation.
''Melbourne can handle two sides,” he added.
''On the pitch we will try and win everything. Off the pitch we will try and win over the supporters.
''I am not going to come out and say that we will go undefeated because that's a bit tough but with the players that we are getting we should be talking about winning it.''
