Krishna in high demand: Rudan
April 23, 2019 5:04 am
Roy Krishna’s charge towards the A-League golden boot has been hailed as extraordinary given the intense interest from rival clubs in signing the Phoenix striker.
Coach Mark Rudan labelled Krishna “the king of Wellington Phoenix” after his hat-trick in the dramatic 3-2 win over Melbourne City on Sunday.
Krishna’s 18 goals are two more than Adam le Fondre’s tally for Sydney FC -with the Fijian international poised to become Wellington’s second golden boot winner.
Rudan says Krishna’s brilliant season could be attributed to more attention to fitness allied with an improved mental strength.
He adds now Krishna had reached 50 A-League goals – the 12th player to do so – he could be mentioned in the same breath as some of the competition’s most accomplished strikers.
