Newly appointed Roar midfielder Stefan Mauk is only a few weeks into his time at the club, but he knows just how determined Brisbane are to target every trophy in the 2018/19 season.

A former Adelaide United championship-winning player, Mauk understands what it takes to have success at Hyundai A-League level.

He discussed this with a-league.com.au about his experience with John Aloisi’s squad as a serious A-League contender.

“We want to win everything, that’s been the objective from the first meeting,” Mauk said.

“All the players and coaching staff sat down and [coach] John [Aloisi] said ‘these are the trophies that are available and we want to win all of them.”

Mauk said of his new life in Brisbane that his fellow players and new facilities are terrific.

“It’s everything you can really ask for as an athlete and I’m looking forward to the coming season,” he added.

“Training is one thing but playing is what we want to do as players. It was good to get some minutes into the legs last week.”

The Roar are set to face fellow A-League outfit – and Mauk’s former team – Melbourne City at Dolphin Stadium, in Mauk’s second trip to Refcliffe.

“I always like playing against my old teams. They’re a quality opposition.”
