Melbourne City say Aaron Mooy is irreplaceable. But Stefan Mauk is volunteering to try.
City will miss their creative spark Mooy, who is on Socceroos duties, in Friday night's A-League stoush against Western Sydney Wanderers.
"You can't replace a player like Mooysie," City midfielder Jacob Melling told reporters on Wednesday.
But Mauk says he's willing to give it a shot, hoping coaches opt for him in the pivotal attacking midfield slot.
