Are we seeing the best of Barbarouses?

 

Kosta Barbarouses scored a goal in both halves as Melbourne Victory cruised to a 3-0 win over the Western Sydney Wanderers at ANZ Stadium. The Kiwi has been in superb form recently which included scoring the winner in last week’s clash against Perth Glory. But is the All White winger in career best form?

Barbarouses has scored six goals in seven matches which is the the best scoring spree he has been on. In 2010-11, while playing for the Brisbane Roar, he netted 12 goals but he did so in 33 matches. In that season he scored four goals in three games on two occasions but never six in seven.

This is his highest goal tally since that season.
