Brisbane Roar-s latest recruits Thomas Broich and Rocky Visconte have targeted instant success for their new club after being unveiled to the media at Suncorp Stadium.
The duo toured the club-s training facilities at Ballymore Stadium before receiving their new jerseys from Brisbane coach Ange Postecoglou at the world class Suncorp Stadium.
Handed the number 22 (Broich) and 14 (Visconte) for the 2010/11 Hyundai A-League season, both players said they were confident their new club would challenge for end-of-year silverware.
“The club-s been really welcoming and I-m looking forward to the season ahead,” Visconte said.
“I came back home to try and get the best out of myself and win trophies.”
“I came out to Australia to play football and be successful,” German-born Broich added.
“The style of football here is not like my home country, but I believe Brisbane has given me a great opportunity to be successful.”
Returning to Australia after spending four years in Scotland, Visconte is looking to copy former Brisbane flyer Tommy Oar-s blueprint of speed and skill down the Roar-s left flank.
“Tommy is a great player, but hopefully as the year goes on, I can get better and better,” the 20 year-old said.
“My main attribute is my speed, but I also like to dribble past players and get quality balls into the box.”
At home further in-field, Broich is eager to add another chapter to his career after years of plying his trade in the top leagues of German football.
“I like to believe I have a very good technique and a great range of passing,” the former FC Nuremberg player said.
“I see myself as a creative player, but believe I have the physical experience to survive in the Hyundai A-League.”
And after finishing their media commitments both players were able to take a close inspection of their new 52, 000 seater home - Suncorp Stadium.
“It-s a great big stadium,” Visconte said.
“It will be unbelievable to get some big crowds in here and create a great atmosphere.”
