Pics: Paartalu trains with new Melbourne City team-mates

Looking ripped and ready to take on the universe, Melbourne City's Men in Black welcomed new team-mate Erik Paaratulu as they took to the training paddock on Monday morning.

Paartalu, returning from the Thai Premier League, was keen to start another A-League campaign after a couple of title-winning campaigns with Brisbane Roar.

“It’s certainly a team that will go from strength to strength and I want to be a part of it," the 28-yeat-old said of City.

"I can’t wait to get started.”
