Perth Glory have denied knowledge of a pending inquiry into alleged salary cap breaches going back over several seasons.
The A-League leaders issued a brief statement on Wednesday regarding media reports they failed to declare player accommodation and sponsor-provided vehicles to players.
Player agent fees totalling $50,602 were not included in the club's 2012-13 salary cap report, according to Fairfax Media, who said Football Federation Australia is now poised to launch an inquiry into alleged irregularities by the WA club.
Fairfax media quoted A-League boss, Damien de Bohun, saying he had been in contact with Glory.
"FFA has noted the allegations raised about Perth Glory and we've spoken to the club today," de Bohun said. "FFA is looking into these matters in line with the usual salary cap compliance practices."
But Perth CEO Jason Brewer said: "The club is compliant with the Hyundai A-League cap.
“Furthermore, Perth Glory FC has not received any notice from Football Federation Australia in relation to any inquiry involving the club."
Perth, who were beaten 1-0 in Tuesday night’s inaugural FFA Cup final and are enjoying their best start to an A-League season, could face fines and point deductions if found to have breached the cap.
Sydney FC were fined and had a one point penalty deduction suspended for falling foul of the cap in 2005-06.comments
