Professional Footballers Australia confirms that Sydney FC pair Matt Thompson and Nick Carle will be reinstated into first team training effective immediately.

Following ongoing discussion between the PFA and Sydney FC both Matt Thompson and Nick Carle will return to first team training.

The PFA will continue liaise with Sydney FC, Thompson and Carle to ensure the rights of the players are upheld.

“We are pleased the players are now able to re-join the group in accordance with their rights under the Collective Bargaining Agreement,” said PFA General Manager Adam Vivian.

“It is our hope that there are no further instances of this practice of excluding and isolating players in the A-League as it has no place here.
