Biography: Arrived on the English south coast in 1997 from Australia via Standard Liege and then Cremonese in Italy. Terry Fenwick paid the Italian outfit £300,000 to bring Aussie striker to Fratton Park and he started to repay the outlay instantly by scoring within three minutes of his debut. He went on to bag of total haul of 29 goals in only 66 games . A £600,000 transfer then took him to Coventry City but he was dogged by injuries and failed to re-capture his initial form. He has since played in Spain (Osasuna), Italy (Alaves) and now back home in Australia for Sydney FC. The Australian international goalscorer, who appeared on the cover of the Australian version of Pro Evolution Soccer, was also the first Australian to play and score in La Liga, the premiership and Serie A. Since 2012 Aloisi has been managed several clubs in his homeland.
