Sydney FC veteran Steve Corica has backed pre-season signing Karol Kisel to make an immediate impact on the field.
"On the pitch definitely, maybe off the pitch like a (Dwight) Yorke and stuff like that he won't have the same effect," Corica said.
"But on the pitch he can definitely have the same effect.
"He is a good player from what we have seen and he is looking forward to the season."
Corica also said Kisel will be a hit with the Sky Blues fans.
"The fans love that sort of lively player, very good on the ball and very attacking as well," he added.
