Robbie IS playing after all....

After the news broke out that Robbie Fowler might not be playing this coming Sunday against Tampines Rovers due to his groin strain, I got an email from the media liaison officer which carried a statement from Mr Ian Ferguson, coach of North Queensland Fury.

Here's it goes....


Hey Po Hui,


We know that there’ve been reports that Robbie might not be playing, but the coach would like to verify that the comments have been made out of context and that he IS playing on Sunday.


Please see the below for Ian Ferguson, coach of North Queensland Fury, comment:

“Dear Singapore fans, I would like to clarify my statement on this report which categorically states that Robbie Fowler will not be playing in our match against Tampines Rovers this Sunday. This report is not accurate and my quote has been taken entirely out of context. The journalist had asked me if I would play Robbie in this match if there were any concerns as to niggling injuries, and I had answered based on that hypothetical question. Allow me to state clearly that barring unforeseen circumstances, Robbie would be taking the pitch against Tampines Rovers on Sunday. I hope this puts the matter at rest.”

Hopefully you’ll be able to make the clarification online. We don’t want those Fowler fans disappointed!

Thanks!

Appreciate the effort and thanks for the clarification, guys :)
