He was a fan favorite at the Western Sydney leading them to 3 grand final appearances and a win in the Asian Champions League, while he is also capped 4 times for the Socceroos.

You will learn plenty from Nikolai Topor-Stanley in episode 29 of Talking with TK.

“It’s very hard to put into perspective unless you lived it, unless you’ve really known struggle it really hard to put into words and be meaningful, I didn’t know struggle until I had to do it and I don’t think I realized what I went through until I actually got through it, at the time It wasn’t what I was thinking but on reflection I can be proud of myself that I stuck with it and battled through the many tins of spaghetti and tasteless meals to get to training”
