Official release from Perth Glory

Perth Glory has finalised its playing squad for the 2011/12 Hyundai A-League season with the signing of Steve Pantelidis.

Pantelidis is the 12th player to join Perth Glory this season and his arrival completes the club’s 23 man squad.

“To be honest the set up here is very good, obviously Melbourne Victory is very professional and has great facilities but I think Glory is excellent,” Pantelidis told the media today.

“I think a lot of the players here have been given a great opportunity to perform week in and week out so I’m expecting a really good season this year.”

Perth Glory coach Ian Ferguson said he was delighted to sign Pantelidis who can play a variety of roles.

“Pantelidis is a great signing because he can do three different positions, he can hold midfield, he can play centre-half and he can also play right full-back, so we’re lucky to have him,” Ferguson said.

“Pantelidis wears his heart on his sleeve, he’s an honest player.

“That’s what you want, you want competitiveness in there and that’s what he gives you. He’s done that throughout his career.

“I think people have unfairly judged him because of his bookings but he’s a far better player than people give him credit for.”
