No more Wandering for Juric

TOMI Juric has been searching for a club to call home for the past couple of years, so perhaps it is fitting that he seems to have finally found one with the Western Sydney Wanderers.

Juric returned from Croatia towards the back end of last season and put in some good performances for Adelaide United.

That caught the attention of Socceroos coach Holger Osieck who chose him for the Australian squad at the East Asian Cup.

Wanderers coach Tony Popovic also liked what he saw and offered the 22-year-old striker a two-year contract with last year's Premiership Plate winners, which Juric accepted.

Juric is delighted he is now making Western Sydney his home and can't wait for the new season to kick off with a repeat of last year's grand final against the Central Coast Mariners on Saturday.

"All the boys have been helping me a lot so that I could come into the side and do well straight away," he said.

"I have been working with the coaches to fix a few little things in terms of fitting into the system but with the team working well, it has helped me fit in."
