Central Coast Mariners signing Shane Huke has revealed how he was annoyed by the actions of the Pohang Steelers players.
Huke made his debut for his new club in the Asian Champions League clash with the Korean outfit earlier this week and although he was happy with the performance of his team, he was less than complimentary about the actions of some of the opposition players.
“The Chinese are very technically very good and have stamina, fitness, speed and control,” Huke told Goal.com.
“The only thing that let them down was that they had to fall over every time you sneezed on them - it was quite annoying!
“As an international team they’d probably improve if they popped into the gym more.
“We get kicked, stand up and get on with it.
“It’s annoying because the refs buy it and in the end you want to kick them as hard as you can but you’ve got to keep your head.”
Huke, who was born in England, is looking to use his experience from playing in English leagues to earn himself a Socceroos cap.
“I definitely am looking toward an Australia call up,” Huke added.
“I missed out on chance with the Australian U20s due to injury.
“Hopefully I do well in this competition, secure a contract and go on from there.”
