PFA to take Brosque, Sydney FC situation further

Professional Footballers Australia will take the situation surrounding Sydney FC striker Alex Brosque further according to chief Brendan Schwab.

Brosque was hoping to land a big pay-day with Japanese club Shimizu S-Pulse, believed to be around $1.5million, but the Sky Blues are refusing to allow his exit.

The reigning A-League champions claim that Shimizu have breached FIFA regulations by pursuing Brosque as they did not enter into negotiations with Sydney after signing a new deal during the current season.

Brosque, who is contracted until the 2013/14 season, and PFA will take the matter to arbitration if Sydney do not allow him to leave as they claim his recently-signed contract does not start until April 1 - after the current A-League season finishes.
