Pasfield says his North Queensland Fury departure is not a betrayal

North Queensland Fury goalkeeper Justin Pasfield believes his imminent departure from the club is not a disloyal act.

The 25-year old shot-stopper is almost certain to leave the Fury for A-League rivals Central Coast Mariners next season due to the fact that the Townsville club's off-field future is not assured.

Pasfield says he is not a traitor and admitted he would definitely miss the club when it comes time for him to depart.

"Am I a traitor?" he asked.

"No never. I hope I will never be called that ever because what this club has done for me here has been amazing.

"I will have a soft spot for this town."

Pasfield admitted his main reason for wanting to leave was uncertainty surrounding the Fury who are currently owned by Football Federation Australia.

"We are not happy about what is going on," Pasfield added.

"But look, at the end of the day Rabieh (Fury chief executive Rabieh Krayem) and his team are doing the best thing they can to make sure the club stays on the pitch next year and for years to come.

"So on that point I would be very disappointed if it's not resolved sooner rather than later."
