Wanderers' Hersi out to entertain

Western Sydney midfield magician Youssouf Hersi says he has more tricks up his sleeve to keep A-League fans mesmerised.

The Dutch import has impressed the growing legion of Wanderers' faithful with his fluid football this season.

The 30-year-old journeyman has played for 10 clubs in the past 12 years including Dutch teams Ajax Amsterdam and FC Twente.

He spent 18 months sidelined with injury before joining with the Wanderers and says he's having the time of his life at the western Sydney club.

"I'm just enjoying playing so much with all the other players and I'm enjoying being here at Western Sydney. I'm having fun," Hersi said ahead of training on Wednesday.

Ethiopian-born Hersi scored his lone A-League goal so far in the Wanderers' 2-0 win over Sydney FC last month.

He has, however, orchestrated many more in the side's eight victories and has been the catalyst for much of the Wanderers' attacking potency.

He once again delighted audiences with his crafty skill in the Wanderers' 2-0 win away to Wellington last week and says he always strives to bring a level of showmanship to games knowing full well that entertaining football puts bums on seats.

"Sometimes I want to do something to give something to the public and the supporters," he said.

"They want to come to see something special.

"So I always want to do something special to make the supporters wake up and say 'wow that's nice'.

"I think when they see these things, more people will want to come to the stadiums.

"I have a lot more (tricks) but it's a surprise. I don't want to say too much," he joked.

The Wanderers sit in fourth spot on the ladder and look genuine title contenders in their inaugural year.

Hersi says they will only get better as the players continue to gel.

"There's a great feeling among the players," he said.

"We all feel so confident and we all know each other much better now.

"When we started, it was a new team and the players came from everywhere and didn't know each other.

"And with a few wins now as well, we really feel great."

The Wanderers meet struggling reigning premiers Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday.

Coach Tony Popovic says Croatian injured striker Dino Kresinger (knee) is a chance to be fit for the clash should he get through this week's training sessions, while Tahj Minniecon (foot) will still be sidelined.
