The ball-winner put his resurgence down to a “combination of factors”.

“It is to do with the players around you and the environment you are in,” he said. “Itis very professional the way we have been working. Everything comes easier when you are fit.Chris Smith and our physio Justin have worked really hard, not just with myself but all the boys.”

Next for Kantarovski and the Jets is the visit by fellow big-improvers Adelaide United on Saturday.

“Hopefully we keep the ball and play some really attacking aggressive football in their half,” Kantarovski said. “Isiais is their main driving force. If we nullify him, it will make life a little easier for us. They have two players suspended and have some others who might be coming back from injury. We are aware of that but by the same token we are going to focus on our game.”

As a teenager Kantarovski, wholed the Young Socceroos to consecutive under-20 World Cups,was scouted by Bayern Munich and spent 10 days on trial with the German powerhouse.

Another overseas opportunity hasn’t arisen and ball-winner said “it is not at the forefront of my mind”.

“It is challenging playing in the A-League,” he said. “Each year the standard has improved. You see that with the quality of players we are attractingto the league. Each year there are new challenges. To go overseas would be a another challenge as well. I am playing good football here, we have assembled a good squad and everyone in the club is happy.”
