Everton star Tim Cahill has denied allegations he was bounced out of a Sydney nightspot on Friday morning. It was reported that bouncers escorted Cahill out of the Trademark Hotel in the early hours of Friday morning after he and other players argued with bar staff, who refused to sell them more drinks, saying they were intoxicated.
Cahill was celebrating winning the inaugural Australian soccer players union player of the year award when they were asked to leave.
This morning, Football Federation Australia released a statement, insisting: "FFA has made inquiries of Tim, the other players and their partners who were present and venue management.
"FFA is satisfied that the allegation is untrue.
"FFA understands that Tim left the premises when asked to do so when it was closing, along with all other patrons."
