An Adelaide United legend in his own right, Eugene Galekovic returns as the Club's Goalkeeping Coach, two-years after ending an incredible 10-year association with the Reds. Galekovic joined Adelaide in 2007 and went on to achieve immense team and personal success, as well as serving as Captain for nearly six years. He won the inaugural FFA Cup in 2014 and played a huge part in clinching an unprecedented Hyundai A-League Premiership and Championship double in 2016. The Reds all-time appearances leader, having played 281 matches, is also a two-time Aurelio Vidmar Club Champion recipient and has been named the Hyundai A-League Goalkeeper of the Year four times. Now Galekovic, who received eight caps for the Socceroos, returns home looking to impart his knowledge on United's current crop of shot-stoppers.
