The little details Tony Popovic demands are the difference this season, says the Glory midfielder
Perth Glory have missed the finals in seven of the 13 iterations of the A-League. They have won no silverware during that time and have only once finished in the top four on the ladder. It is against this backdrop that Glory find themselves in the unfamiliar position of topping the table with 10 rounds to go and powering towards the club’s first premiership since the NSL.
The revolution began last May when Glory appointed a new chief executive (Tony Pignata) and a new head coach (Tony Popovic), both with title-winning pedigree. They then went on a recruitment drive spearheaded by the general manager of football, Jacob Burns, that prioritised high-quality experienced Australians.
