Adelaide United coach Guillermo Amor is adamant new Spanish signing Sergi Guardiola will only get better following his A-League debut.
The one-time Barcelona striker played 90 minutes in Sunday’s 1-1 draw away to Newcastle Jets, where the goals came from Wayne Brown and Jesse Makarounas.
“Guardiola was good,” Amor said.
“He’s here three weeks. It’s always difficult when you arrive in a far country.
“For me, he’s a good player, he played well with the ball, he ran, pressed and he’s hungry.
“He wants to score a lot of goals but his performance the next games will be better.”
The Spanish coach added that he’d prefer to win but wasn’t too fazed by sharing the points.
“The result is not bad,” Amor said. “It’s true I’d prefer to win but in this moment this game was open. You can win or lose.
“For the first game the performance was good in general.
“We worked a lot. We ran a lot with the ball or without the ball.
“It’s always possible to play better. We have time, we must improve things. It’s the first game.”
Adelaide face Western Sydney Wanderers in a grand final re-match on Friday night.
