Arthur Papas says that he wants to make Newcastle Jets an unforgettable team.
has talked about his goals with the team, insisting that he wants to build a team that people can remember for a long time.
"I want people to talk about the football and say, 'there was that team that Newcastle had and we loved going to watch them play, it was exciting and they always had it go'",
says Newcastle Jets head coach Arthur Papas
The 41-year-old manager is challenged to help the club reach the finals, but he insists that reaching the finals shouldn’t be enough for the 2008 A-League champions.
"We're all aiming for success,"
Papas told Stats Perform
. "I'm not in this just to get into the finals. That's not enough, the bar isn't low. There's no ceiling with what I want to achieve with this club. There shouldn't be. Anyone who puts a ceiling on it straight away has basically cancelled any ambition of where you could go.
"But, the main thing is I want people to talk about the football and say 'there was that team that Newcastle had and we loved going to watch them play, it was exciting and always had it go and okay, didn't get it right every time', but they could resonate with our football and they don't forget that. If we're able to achieve that, we would have done something special. Normally, if you have achieved that, you also would've got pretty close to being quite successful in terms of results."
