The Mariners’ three visa signings have all finished their hotel quarantine periods and are set to begin training with the squad in the lead up to next Tuesday’s clash with Western Sydney Wanderers.
Stefan Jankovic, Marcos Ureña and Michal Janota all finished their mandatory 14-day period of quarantine late last week and over the weekend and will now work with Mariners staff to get up to speed with their new teammates.

Mariners Head Coach Alen Stajcic said it was great to have the players out of quarantine and with the team.
“We are glad to have these three arriving on the training paddock now, and now we can begin bringing them up to speed with how we play and working on their match fitness too,” Stajcic said.
“I know they too are happy to be out and about now and have spent some time getting used to the Central Coast around their training commitments.”
“They all bring different qualities to this group and we’re excited for the fans to see them when they are ready to play, but it’s important that there is an element of patience too.”
“We have seen across the league that it takes some time for these players to get up to full fitness after some time out of football and 14 days in isolation so it is imperative that we give them the time they need to prepare properly.”
The Mariners are in the midst of a long turnaround since the win over Macarthur, with quick fire games against Western Sydney Wanderers and Sydney FC to come next week.
