FFA have been wrapped up in the recent World Cup bid and have seemingly let the national competition fall to the wayside but things need to be fixed soon before it’s too late according to Bolton.
“I think a lot of people were hoping and praying that Australia would get the World Cup to secure the future of Australian football. But now we are entering a period of uncertainty.
“This is the time that the FFA needs to knuckle down and put more time and energy into the A-League so it can become a successful competition were local football can grow.
“The A-League started off well and now it’s going through a lean time. It is definitely not the end of the A-League by any stretch of the imagination, but we do need to make sure that we work hard now so in the coming years the league becomes stronger.''
