McKay says players stand with fans over protests

Professional Footballers Association President Matt McKay has insisted the players support A-League fans in regards to their recent protests.

Speaking at the 2015 PFA Annual General Meeting today in Melbourne the Brisbane Roar captain addressed fellow A-League and W-League players.

“The past week has presented challenges for the game to address. The players are firm in their support of the fans and the players must stand with them,” McKay said.

“The fans make the A-League the competition what it is today and the players support them in ensuring their rights and interests are protected.

“Fans of the A-League are the best of any sport in Australia. They make players proud to play football in Australia.”
