Wellington Phoenix coach Darije Kalezic admits his side is still developing as one in the teams 1-0 loss to Melbourne City on Saturday night.

The Bosnian admitted that Wellington is going through a new structure, and they are not rushing the progress of the side.

“It’s the process of it taking time, Wellington are not great at the beginning of the season,” he said.

“Everything is realistic, and we are getting compliments on how we play.”

Kalezic mentioned that he didn’t leave Europe to show how good the Phoenix can play, but wants to win silverware which has alluded the Nixes since coming into the A-League.

“I didn’t leave Europe to show how good we can play in the A-League, I leave my career in Europe to win trophies,” he said.

“My bar is really high, I’m a coach who wants to be there where I can be able to play for trophies.”

The Bosnian praised his team for digging deep, and playing consistent football. However, he mentions that you can’t win matches unless you score goals.

“We scored two goals in the previous game, that’s a lot. Today we had no luck with the chances at goals.”
