Valeri keen for A-League skipper debut

  • Valeri keen for A-League skipper debut

He missed Melbourne Victory's A-League season opener but new club captain Carl Valeri has declared himself a certain starter for the Melbourne derby on Saturday night.

Valeri said a "niggly knee injury" kept him from debuting as captain in last weekend's 0-0 draw with Adelaide United, but he would be taking his place against Melbourne City.

It's less clear who will return in place of suspended utility Leigh Broxham, with a string of youngsters contending to partner Mathieu Delpierre.
