Hogan breaks silence on Dockers move


//

Newly-acquired Fremantle forward Jesse Hogan has revealed the pivotal role played by club captain Nat Fyfe and coach Ross Lyon in his decision to join the Dockers.

Hogan was a mainstay in Melbourne's lineup since making his debut in 2015, but wanted to be back home in Western Australia and explained how a meeting with Lyon a fortnight ago cleared things up.

"I had a few conversations with Nat about the club’s direction and I caught up with Ross two weeks ago, we had a really good chat about everything," Hogan told Fremantle's website.

"We went through the list and the culture which aligned with where I’m at. The timing seemed right to try and pursue that and here we are."

Hogan's manager Matt Bain had expressed on NAB AFL Trade Radio that the reasons for his departure from Melbourne was purely due to family reasons, and Hogan expressed his excitement at being back home. 

"I’m feeling a bit of relief, excitement, there’s a bit of everything," Hogan said.

"There’s been a roller coaster of emotions really, but I’m super excited and I can’t wait to get started."

Bain explained how there were feelings of relief from Hogan's camp after securing the move to Fremantle, but also praised the Demons for their handling of Hogan during his time at the club.

"It's been a pretty traumatic three or four years for him with a lot of things going on in his life, but to get him back home around some family and friends was a really good result for him," Bain said.

"Melbourne definitely didn't want to get rid of Jesse. I couldn't speak any more highly of the Melbourne Football Club in the way they've handled it."

Melbourne list manager Josh Mahoney admitted that the Demons were simply looking to do the best deal for the club, and agreed that the decision to move Hogan was all about getting him back to Western Australia.

Hogan leaves the Demons having played 71 games since his debut in 2015 and having kicked 152 goals including a career-high 47 goals in 2018.
