Grant Brebner, who is the interim head coach at Melbourne Victory, claims that he is quite satisfied with the goalkeeping options at the club despite the departure of Lawrence Thomas. After managing to pick up two championship titles with Melbourne Victory and making 122 appearances in the a league, Lawrence Thomas has decided to call it quits at the club. His departure comes at a time when the A-league has just resumed for many clubs including Melbourne Victory. The disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic means that Brebner will have to do with a reduced option list in the goalkeeping positions.
“Acton will take the gloves and Sutton is a fantastic keeper who came through the youth team ranks with myself. If I have to use him I will not hesitate.I have to stress that I am not just going to play kids to get plaudits.If there is a senior player that deserves to be playing, he will play. If the youngsters are showing that they want to train better and their enthusiasm merits a starting place then they will play,” said Brebner.
