Van ‘t Schip plays down title favourite talk, praises Cahill goal, effort

Such was the quality of City’s game – Victory rarely was able to mount an attack – that they will now be widely talked up as championship favourites, but it’s not something Van ‘t Schip wants to hear.

“It’s one of our best performances at Etihad. We were the better team, we worked hard for that. It’s early days, we are improving, getting better, there are very good signs.

“But it’s two games in. We have done well in Wellington (where City won 1-0 in round one) and this evening. For me it’s not enough. Championships are not won in the first two games.”

He was delighted with the contribution of marquee man Tim Cahill, who worked, chased, harassed, battled and scored a goal for the ages when he beat Victory goalkeeper Lawrence Thomas from 40 metres.

“Its something that world class players do. Tim saw the moment, we talked about it, maybe that it was on. Tim had an eye for it, you need a bit of luck for it but you need the quality to hit the ball in the right way.

“The big players, the big moments, when the pressure is there (they deliver). They are talking about Tim coming back (to Australia).

“He showed he is a great player, a good player, he is mentally very strong. He is  giving  players around the club a good vibe and feeling.

“His own performance was good, he worked hard for the team, being smart and on top of that he made a great goal. He couldn’t wish for a better start.”

City now face a quick turnaround before they host Perth Glory next Friday night, while the two Melbourne clubs face each other in an FFA Cup semi-final at AAMI Park on Tuesday October 25.
