New Glory coach backs Smeltz to stay

New Perth Glory coach Alistair Edwards says there's no way star striker Shane Smeltz will play for an A-League rival next season, but an overseas move could be on the cards.

Rumours are building that Smeltz may leave the Glory at the end of the season - one year short of when his contract expires.

Edwards, who has been appointed coach for the next three seasons, said Smeltz had given him no indication that he wants to leave.

But if an overseas club came knocking with a big enough offer, Edwards conceded Perth may have little choice but to let him go.

"He's committed to the club," Edwards said.

"But the reality of football is there are multi-million-dollar contracts available. Not so much in Australia, but in Asia and Europe.

"If there's an opportunity for him to get a multi-million-dollar contract, then of course he's going to look at that opportunity.

"But in terms of him leaving this club to go to another A-League club, not a chance."

Smeltz is the A-League's most prolific striker with 73 goals in 121 games.

But the 31-year-old has scored just seven times this season, with injuries and Perth's poor form curtailing his influence.

Edwards has set out a three-to-five-year plan in a bid to transform the Glory into a powerhouse of the A-League.

One of his key aims is to lure West Australian talent back to the club.

Perth are still in the finals hunt with just two rounds remaining, but will likely need all three points against Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park on Saturday night.
