1st the Indonesian, now the ChinesePosted: August 16, 2011
After going months and hearing nothing about any potential new ownership groups, the stories are coming from all angles and all different areas of the world. Last week we reported on a story by Mike Cockerill in the Sydney Morning Herald about a potential Indonesian ownership group, now the Courier Mail is running a story claiming that a Chinese consortium is considering buying into the club. Marco is reporting that the FFA have been made aware of the interest of the Indonesia and Chinese consortiums aswell as local interest from the Clem Jones Group who ofcourse have been the majority owners of the city’s former professional football team back in the NSL days, the Brisbane Strikes.
Regardless of who wants to buy into the club and whatever combination of whatever of people put the final package together, the important thing is that there is a wide range of parties prepared to invest in the club, and the league as a whole which can only be a good thing. Marco is also reporting that Ange has cooled his interest in AZ Alkmaars young Australian midfielder James Holland as he isnt keen on a return home at this present time.
