YOUR SAY: Tell us what Westfield Matildas content you want to see!

MAT: What moment would you like to wipe out of your your memory forever?

Luik: "Nothing to per se.  I think, yeah there are bad things that have happened. That maybe I want to forget at the time but I think you learn and grow from them. So, nothing.”

MAT: Which footballer – past or present – do you most identify with?

Luik: "I don’t know if I mostly identify with this player, but I really love in [Andrés] Iniesta and I love the way he plays.  Whenever he used to play, I used to be glued to the screen not really watching the ball but watching him. I would I mix him and Marcello because Marcello likes to goof around and have fun at training and I like to do that too.”

MAT: What profession other than football would you like to try?

Luik: "Any kind of Red Bull athlete.  Maybe like downhill mountain biking, or snowboarding.  Not surfing because I want to keep that as like something that I love and you know if you get competitive in it and whatnot, you can lose the love for it and  I don't think I'd ever lose the love for surfing.  Yeah, let's go snowboarding or downhill mountain biking.”

MAT: At the end of your football career, what would you like people to say about you?

Luik: "I just want them to remember me, you know, as a good player and a good person."
