Reds relief for Roar
FRIDAY night’s clash against English Premier League club Liverpool will be a welcome distraction for the embattled Brisbane Roar.
For the Roar squad, it’s a great chance to forget about continuing off- field dramas over ownership and debts.
“You don’t get Liverpool coming to your backyard everyday,” Roar defender James Donachie said. “Football’s our job so that’s what we focus on and not let anything else get in the way of that.”
But before facing the Reds at Suncorp Stadium, the Roar have another hurdle to overcome — tomorrow’s payday.
Player wages were two weeks late for the previous pay cycle.
