Bleiberg excited about Queensland rivalry

Gold Coast United coach Miron Bleiberg says he is looking forward to beginning a rivalry with the other A-League clubs in Queensland.

Bleiberg knows that there will be tension between all three clubs in Queensland (Gold Coast, North Queensland Fury and the established Queensland Roar) and expects the rivalries to varied, with his real passion t knock off former employer the Roar.

"The two clubs are not so far apart and maybe you create more of a situation where you have the kind of rivalry that you could have with supporters following a sport in the west of Sydney and their rivals in eastern Sydney," he told au.fourfourtwo.com.

"I think the Gold Coast people have been fed up of seeing their talent disappear off to Brisbane. Now they have a side of their own to really get behind.

"I believe everyone is looking forward to it (the rivalry).

"People will be very interested to see how the two new clubs, ourselves and the Fury, perform in their first season," he added.

"There will be a desire to show which is the best team in Queensland (of the two newcomers). So that is a rivalry, of course."
