Kruse to become more ‘selfish’ for Melbourne Victory
Melbourne Victory striker Robbie Kruse admits he will become more selfish in front of goal.
The Victory have made a less than impressive start, results-wise, to the A-League season and after the misfiring 2-0 loss to Central Coast Mariners on Friday night were told by coach Ernie Merrick to shoot more often.
On a number of occasions so far this term, Melbourne have dominated play but failed to put it on the scoreboard and now he has a license to try his luck, Kruse plans to use it.
"It's good to hear we've got to be a bit more selfish," Kruse said.
"I guess that's what strikers are, selfish. I'm still young and still trying to learn the craft of everything and hopefully I can take it on board and do that.
"We're getting into good spots and we're beating a few players, but maybe we're overdoing it and we need to get our shots off more.
"It's definitely something we'll be working on during the week and hopefully if I get a few chances on the weekend I can take them."
Seventh-placed Victory take on third-placed Brisbane Roar at AAMI Park this Sunday – kick-off is at 3:00pm.
