FOR the first time since joining Brisbane Roar last year, marquee man Eric Bautheac says he’s fully fit and firing, and that looms as bad news for Wellington Phoenix at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday.
Despite the Roar being held to a 1-1 home draw by Central Coast last Sunday, winger Bautheac was one of the best players on the park.
Brisbane coach John Aloisi said he could not remember a better performance from Frenchman Bautheac since his arrival in Australia 12 months ago.
It meant his fitness was compromised, leading to injuries and frustrations that he couldn’t regularly live up to his potential.
But it’s a different story this year. Chiselled by a full pre-season with the Roar and buoyed by the attacking depth in Brisbane’s squad, Bautheac is excited by what he and the club can achieve between now and May.
“Last season when I came here it was very hard,” he said.
“Last week (against the Mariners) it was my first game for Brisbane at 100 per cent.
“I was never had 100 per cent last season. Maybe the best I was then was 80 per cent.”
Bautheac said the on and off-field relationship among him and fellow attacking weapons Tobias Mikkelsen, Adam Taggart and Stefan Mauk would be key to Brisbane’s potential success on Sunday and this season.
“We work every day together, there’s a good feeling, we are good friends and on the pitch we have a really good understanding,” said Bautheac
who was also full of praise for late pre-season arrival Alex Lopez, the Spanish midfielder that has taken the spot of club captain Matt McKay.
“I like him because he plays forward and plays quick, and that’s very important for the wingers and the strikers.
