From Benfica to Melbourne?

After officially confirming the signing of Carlos Hernañdez earlier this week, rumour has it that Kaz Patafta, Australian Under 20 and Olympic representative will play for Melbourne on loan this season from Portuguese giant, Benefica for a sum of €50,000. If this is true, this is great news not only for the Victory but also for Australian football as it will give one of Australia's rising stars a chance to get some game time and show of his skills in front of his home fans. It also shows that the European clubs are keeping an eye of what is going on in Australia and see the A-League as an opportunity to give young starts some game time.

This item has now been discussed on both The Age and The World Game websites.
