    The Wellington Phoenix's new signing's keen to leave his own legacy in the A-League

    The Wellington Phoenix's new signing's keen to leave his own legacy in the A-League


    Former Celtic and Norwich striker Gary Hooper's joined the 'Nix on a one season deal and has scored 189 career goals.

    Roy Krishna was Wellington's top scorer last season with 18 goals.

    However, Hooper isn't feeling pressure to mirror Krishna's achievements.



    Hooper won't be available until next weekend's round three match with Perth.
