After a top shelf strike against Newcastle that made highlight reels around the country there are few Hyundai A-League fans who don-t know about Perth-s new ‘Big Dadi-.

Following two solid performances new striker Eugene Dadi has shown why Coach Dave Mitchell was so keen to bring the former Ivory Coast International to Western Australia and the good news for Glory fans is that Dadi believes he has plenty of improvement left.

“My fitness is better after a couple of games under my belt and I expect to continue to grow. The confidence is there after scoring so it-s all good,” Dadi said.

Pre-season illness and injury curtailed the final part of Dadi-s preparations however he has worked overtime to get back to full fitness and has made his intentions clear that he isn-t here for a holiday.

Dadi is one of nine fresh faces in the Glory camp this season and is impressed with how quickly the team has gelled and predicts they-ll continue to develop with more time spent on the pitch.

“I think we-re playing well and the fans are quite delighted to see how we-re performing and hopefully we keep doing this,” he said.

“Game after game things are going to come and we-re going to do well.

“It is easy to play with good players and the squad is full of these. Everything will come,” he said.

Dadi will be one of the key planks in Perth-s raid on Sydney this Sunday and said he is looking forward to playing against a side many experts have predicted to take home the 2008/09 championship.

“It will be difficult I think, but we have been doing not too bad the last two games and we-ll be going there for a result also, it will be good to be there,” Dadi said.

“It-s one of the games you want to play. They have been talking a lot about Sydney but we-re going to go there to do the job, we know it will be tough and expect to get a difficult time but we have confidence and I believe we have the quality to do something there also,” he said.
