With the A-League Men’s season kicking off on Friday, the PFA’s podcast, the Footballers’ Voice, is back!

Host Jake Barker-Daish, a former Australian youth international and A-Leagues midfielder, is joined by Andrew Durante.

Following a long and storied career on the pitch in Australian and New Zealand football, Durante has transitioned into his new career following his retirement, helping to support the development of players at Western United off the pitch in his new role as Player Welfare and Development Manager.

Durante will work with the PFA to ensure Western United players across all programs, including men’s, women’s and youth teams, will have the necessary support and guidance to achieve their football and non-football goals.

About The Footballers’ Voice

The careers of Australia’s professional footballers extend well beyond their performances on the pitch; their lives and experiences are varied, diverse and rich. Through Footballers’ Voice, the players’ individual and collective stories are explored with host Jake Barker-Daish, who delves into their lives as people first, footballers second.

Footballers’ Voice features discussion on player education, wellbeing, identity, mentality, sacrifices and what it takes to become a professional footballer.
