Marcelo Carrusca spoke to the media ahead of the AUFC Legends match against the Australian Defence Force Football Team on Sunday.

The Argentine midfielder amassed 123 appearances and scored 27 goals between 2012 and 2017, while winning three trophies.

Current fitness situation:

“I’m pretty good, just a bit worried because I found out today that people are coming from other states and they have a very good team.

“But always confident, so ready for tomorrow.”

Rest of the squad shaping up:

“Yeah, look, there is a couple of injuries already. But I think we’re going to have a good team.

“We cannot say much because we maintain little secrets. But yeah, I think it’s going to be amazing again to play a Coopers with the fans for us ex-players.

“It’s always nice to come back to Coopers and play in front of them. So, it’s going to be a good opportunity for us and also for them.”

Tactics the Legends will implement:

“I think we’re going to go like (Diego) Simeone, you know. Defending for the 60 minutes.

“I think we’re going to play 60 minutes. Yeah, now look, as I said before, it’s going to be fun game and hopefully we can win which is important.”

Importance of the event:

“Yeah, it’s fantastic. I think we did something like this a couple of years ago.

“And we have a lot of fun we get together and it’s nice to come here with all the community and helps also to raise money, which is important as well.

“So it’s going to be a very, very good atmosphere and we want to invite everyone to come and enjoy the game with us.”
