    ´╗┐Canberra Olympic's Stephen Domenici is the best player outside the A "I believe Stephen is the best player in the country outside of the A League and better nike black shoes than many in it and would be a fantastic mature age rookie aquisition for any of the clubs. "This time the smart ones will get it and the dumb ones will continue to be dumb A League clubs winning nothing." "It just takes brave managers, and there's nike elite socks not many in the A League right now, to give good young players who aren't already in the system an opportunity," Bernal said. "They need to actually earn their money by taking on a kid or a mature age rookie and develop them, that's what they're getting paid to do. "But there's no relegation so everyone is content and happy thinking 'we'll be in the league again next year', no one is accountable, no one cares because if you finish last it doesn't matter. "Go out and watch NPL and grab two or three boys and actually sit down and make a plan for them and turn them into players you can keep for a decade." Domenici has admitted he lacked the mental and physical strength during his first crack at the professional ranks, but Bernal believes Canberra's league leading goal scorer is now ready. "At the the AIS he was one of the best kids in the country and Ned Zelic agreed. Ned took him to Germany and he ended nike roshe men up at Vicenza in Italy," Bernal said. "He had lot of potential but he got lost on the way, mentally and physically he wasn't ready for European football and when he came back he got stuck in Canberra. "He has a football brain and beautiful technique and great understanding of the game that wouldn't be out of place in the A League. "There's people playing EPL and in Spain and Italy who have been been plucked out of the lower leagues at 24 or 25, but in this country there seems to be a stigma attached to guys in the NPL which I don't understand." Olympic made the FFA Cup semi final last season without Domenici and Bernal says the talisman must star in this campaign to grab the attention of A League clubs. "It's opportunities like Wednesday in Perth which Stephen needs to make the most of and show A League managers that he's a kid worth taking a risk on," Bernal said.
