Football Federation of Australia (FFA) has warned the Indonesian investors of Brisbane Roar that they could face a reprieve over their club’s control following the financial troubles which should be addressed immediately.
The message came out as a “final warning” to the Bakrie Group as the current owner of the A-League team, who have met FFA chief executive David Gallop on last Friday.
Gallop said there was a “frank discussion” in the meeting between the two representatives in Sydney, where they also talked about the club’s future.
“The Bakrie Group is under no illusion of what’s required to remedy this situation,” Gallop said in a statement.
“Paying wages and superannuation arrears, clearing debts and recapitalising the business are the next urgent steps.
“On our part, FFA has advised the Bakrie Group that they will forfeit any right to the A-League licence if the current situation continues.
“To their credit, they understand this and have told us they intend to act quickly,” he added.
