Brisbane Roar Football Club and defender Jade North would like to acknowledge that his conduct in the incident with Melbourne City’s Bruno Fornaroli in the second half of last Saturday night’s match was unacceptable behaviour.
North is sincerely apologetic to the Club, playing group and supporters for letting game-related emotions get the better of him causing an error of judgement during the match. Brisbane Roar’s Vice Captain is disappointed with his actions.
As a Club, we do not condone simulation.
Brisbane Roar Football Club know that this is an isolated incident and believe North is an excellent leader and ambassador of our Club and our game.
This matter has been dealt with internally. BRFC and Jade North will not be making any further comment.
