Sydney FC interested in Luis Figo
Sydney: Sydney FC Football Manager Dave Mason told the Sydney Morning Herald that a player of Figo’s stature would be perfect for the A-League club.
The inaugural champions made contact with Figo’s agent Rob Jansen two months ago but hit a stumbling bloc when the player outlined his desire to play in the finals series at the end of the regular season – which guest players are unable to do under the league’s rules.
“Obviously someone of that stature is exactly the sort of guest player you`d want, but the timing wasn`t right,`` Mason said.
``If he changes his mind and wants to come out sooner rather than later, then we`d definitely consider it.”
“Our position on a guest player remains the same - if we can get someone in the attacking third, with the right sort of CV, then we are keen to do it.``
