Wanderers reach confidential agreement over pay dispute

Western Sydney Wanderers players have resolved their row with the club over the allocation of prize money from the FIFA Club World Cup.

The club released a brief statement late on Thursday saying a confidential agreement had been reached and the players were now focused on their upcoming campaign in Morocco.

The fall-out over the allocation of money divided players and fans across the game with even former Socceroos at odds over talk of strike action.

The club is guaranteed a minimum $1.2 million in prize money for participating in the cup.

“Western Sydney Wanderers have today reached a resolution with the playing group in relation to the allocation of FIFA Club World Cup prize money ahead of its first match against Cruz Azul on 13 December 2014,” the statement read.

“The Club and players are united in their focus to proudly represent their members, sponsors, the Western Sydney community and Australian football as a whole in the FIFA Club World Club in Morocco.

The terms of resolution will remain confidential and no further comment will be made in relation to this matter by either party.
