FREMANTLE’s up-and-coming midfielder Adam Cerra won’t buy into the hype of contract talks just yet and wants to focus on winning games instead.
Cerra is contracted until the end of next season but is yet to put pen to paper on an extension, worrying some Fremantle faithful he might be tempted home to Victoria.
The 2017 number 5 draft pick visited Mount Pleasant Primary School yesterday as part of a school clinic session with students and said while it was hard to ignore the hype, he focused on what he could control.
“As long as we are winning I don’t get into that stuff,” he said.
“At the moment I’m focusing week to week, that stuff, I’ll sit down at the end of the year once the games are done and talk about that.
“I’m loving my time in Perth, loving my time at Freo and really enjoying football, so that’s something I’ll more look to the end of the year to deal with.
“But at the moment I’m just looking to focus on footy.
“I made that commitment at the start of the year.”
Despite a few tough games, Cerra said he was happy with the team’s last two performances, but not satisfied.
“We need to bring that every week,” he said.
“We are expecting a tough challenge with Brisbane and are aiming to bring our best every week.”
After playing 12 games in his debut season Cerra said was looking forward to putting his feet up during the bye before preparing for the game against equal-last placed Brisbane at Optus Stadium on July 1.
