Nurnberg's Vidosic moves to Duisburg on loan

Australian midfielder Dario Vidosic has joined German second division club MSV Duisburg on loan from Bundesliga club FC Nurnberg. The 22-year old Australia international is keen to gain more regular first team football as the World Cup approaches so he can have the best possible chance of making Pim Verbeek's 23-man squad.

Vidosic said the opportunity to join Duisburg for six months was a good one and believes it will do him the world of good as he strives to achieve his World Cup dream.

"I don't think Pim Verbeek will have too many problems with it," Vidosic said.

"He'll be happy that I've gone there to play games and that it's a very good club who are doing very well in the second division.

"The German second division is a very big league with a lot of good teams."

The former Brisbane Roar man admitted he has to continue working hard to improve his game and before he left Nurnberg, was told he is a big part of the future plans of the club which gave him confidence.

"The excitement's definitely building, but I'm doing my best just to take things day by day," he added.

"I want to improve and I won't be resting on any laurels.

"Every time I go back to a Socceroos camp I want to be better and I want Pim to see that I'm always getting better.

"The (Nurnberg) coach (Dieter Hecking) told me he wanted me to stay, but he couldn't promise me the minutes that I wanted.

"He said it was good for me to go for six months and get some matches under my belt, but told me that at the end of it I had to come back."
