Adelaide United Head Coach, Carl Veart, has praised midfielder, Louis D’Arrigo, following the 21-year-old’s 100th Adelaide United appearance.

At the age of just 21 years and 196 days, D’Arrigo became the youngest player in the Club’s history to reach a century of appearances, beating-out Robert Cornthwaite who reached the feat at the age of 24 years and 13 days.

Since making his debut for the Reds as a 17-year-old, D’Arrigo has gone from strength-to-strength in his development and has also scored five goals for his hometown team.

Speaking on the youngster’s milestone after the Reds’ 1-1 draw with Sydney FC on Friday evening, Veart praised D’Arrigo for his hard work to get to this point.

Veart said:
“Louis has done a lot (so far) and you forget that he’s so young in playing 100 games for the one club as well.

“It’s excellent and it’s truly down to Louis and the way he prepares himself, the way he works, the way he takes information on.

“He hasn’t had it easy.

“I said to him, after the game, it would have been nice for him to have scored, but hopefully he can have another 100 games for the Club, if he doesn’t go overseas.

“Hopefully he keeps improving because we know what we’re going to get from him every time I pick Louis and that’s 100 per cent effort.”
