Adam Taggart: I’ve rediscovered my love for the game


Perth Glory striker Adam Taggart says he has rediscovered his love for the game in the early stages of his second stint at the Western Australian club.

Taggart endured a difficult period overseas with Fulham, where he was unable to make a lasting impression and was often farmed out on loan.

The 23-year-old even missed a large portion of 2016 by virtue of the fact he had played for too many clubs according to FIFA rules in one year.

“Especially over the last couple of months, I’ve been able to stay fit and play regular football,” Taggart said.

“Even just being back in the home town where I can play in front of family and friends again.

“Over the last few years it’s sort of just been turn up to the stadium by yourself with no one watching.

“It’s definitely a nice feeling, especially having the win on the weekend, that’s just top the last month off.

“We had a good trip away, results are decent for any club.

“It’s a positive for myself and the club.”

Glory are unbeaten in their last three matches and now sit fifth on the A-League table, four points behind Brisbane Roar.

Taggart warned there is still plenty more to come from Glory in the second half of the season.

“I think we’re all still building up to the second half of the season,” he added.

“I think in the A-League, if you can have a good run into the finals, everyone forgets about what happened in the first half of the season, like what happened with Adelaide (last season) and what happened with Perth last season.

“It’s not time to panic just yet, there’s still a long way to go … there’s still a lot more to come.

“I think it’s pretty obvious to everyone we haven’t reached our full potential yet.”
