Port Adelaide would certainly be open to a romantic Shaun Burgoyne return if the situation became possible.
Burgoyne recently announced his retirement from the game after 12 years with Hawthorn and eight seasons with the Power before that.
The four-time premiership player is reportedly already on the radar of the Adelaide Crows, but could the Power also come knocking?
Port’s GM of Football Chris Davies has commented on the possibility of the 38-year-old taking an off-field role at Alberton.
“Our club has had an interest in Shaun Burgoyne for a long time,” Davies said on SEN SA Breakfast.
“If Shaun was to make the decision to come back to Adelaide, of course we’d be interested in what he could bring to our club.
“I’m not sure if that’s the case at the moment, but if he was to make a decision to come home then I’m sure we’d have an interest in having Shaun at our club.
“There’s not too many times you get an opportunity to garner the wisdom of a 400-game player to impart on your department or your playing group.
“If Shaun made the decision to come back to Adelaide, I’m sure that we’d have a discussion with him.”
Burgoyne played 157 games with the Power between 2002 and 2009, playing a pivotal role in the club’s first and only AFL premiership in 2004.
