Ross Aloisi's behaviour must be addressed by Brisbane Roar's management

The players and leaders manage an exceptional team culture at Brisbane Roar. But another off-field incident has raised questions about whether that is mirrored in the club's coaching culture and football operations staff.

Brisbane Roar's assistant coach Ross Aloisi will not be present on the sideline for the remainder of the season after copping a four-match ban for striking a rival coach in the tunnel after their 2-1 loss to Adelaide on Sunday. The club's football director and former Socceroos captain Craig Moore was banned for one match for comments made towards referee Steven Lucas in the wake of that defeat.

Those penalties are another poor reflection on a club whose coaching staff publicly pride themselves on being above such behaviour.

As recently as last December, Ross Aloisi spoke with local media ahead of a match against Melbourne City, whose coach John Van't Schip suggested Brisbane's head coach, John Aloisi, was "whinging like a baby" in his complaints about the physical game. Ross Aloisi vowed not to stoop to the level of van't Schip and enter a war of words.

However, Ross Aloisi then went on to question van't Schip's courage in not confronting both brothers on matchday to exchange views face-to-face.

Next, Ross took aim at City marquee player Tim Cahill, questioning his behaviour on the sidelines, and more notably, the culture within the Melbourne City club. A

John and Ross Aloisi set to sign Brisbane Roar contract extensions

JOHN Aloisi?s London-based agent Frank Trimboli will be in Australia this week to finalise the coach?s new Roar deal.

Trimboli, Aloisi and Brisbane Roar managing director Mark Kingsman are attending Tuesday night?s World Cup qualifier between Australia and United Arab Emirates in Sydney, where they will also meet to lock in a contract that will keep Aloisi in Brisbane for at least another two seasons.

Aloisi?s retention will ensure his brother and assistant coach Ross Aloisi also stays with the club beyond this year.

Ross Aloisi is serving a four-game sideline ban for breaching Football Federation Australia?s national code of conduct following his tunnel altercation with Adelaide United assistant coach Jacobo Ramallo, but retains the full support of Roar officials.

The Courier-Mail can also reveal that John Aloisi met with Aga Bakrie, the son of Roar owner Nirwan Bakrie, on the club?s visit to Japan this month for their AFC Champions League clash against Kashima Antlers.

It was the first time Aloisi had met with a member of the Bakrie family.

In a further sign that the Bakrie Group remain committed to their ownership of the club, Aga is expected to attend a Roar match during the upcoming A-League finals series.

While the Aloisis are staying, the Roar?s medical staff is being overhauled.

Broich hopes crucial clash can lift tired team

Broich hopes crucial clash can lift tired team

MARCO MONTEVERDE @marcothejourno, The Courier-Mail

BRISBANE marquee man Thomas Broich is banking on the occasion of a crucial AFC Champions League clash to lift a team running on empty.

The three-time A-League champions produced a tired weekend display against Wellington Phoenix, suffering a rare 2-1 home defeat to a battling team that had picked up just a point in its previous five matches.

It was the Roar?s eighth game in 29 days, with the combination of a busy and inflexible schedule, little recovery time between matches, trips to China, Melbourne and Perth, and a lengthy injury list taking its toll.

?It was a big opportunity for us that we couldn?t grab,? Broich said following a defeat that dropped the Roar to fifth spot on the A-League ladder.

?I was actually not too unhappy with the way we played sometimes, but it felt like we were just missing that strength and sharpness when it really mattered.

?We?re paying the price a little bit in terms of injuries, because we?ve had players coming back from injuries and others who couldn?t play at all.

?We know we can play better but given the circumstances at the moment, the schedule and the injuries, we?re not able to tap into our full potential.?

And there?s no respite for the squad, who left yesterday for South Korea, where they will meet Ulsan Hyundai in a

Bowles out for the rest of 2017 with a ruptured ACL

Brisbane Roar FC are disappointed to advise, defender Daniel Bowles, requires major knee surgery which will rule him out of football for the rest of 2017.

The injury to Bowles occurred after a collision with a Melbourne City player in the 88th minute of last Saturday night?s match at AAMI Park in the Hyundai A-League competition.

Bowles, on Monday, 13 February had an MRI Scan on his right knee.

Unfortunately, after consulting Club surgeon Jeremy Bartlett it was determined that Daniel suffered a rupture to his right Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and has some associated damage to surrounding cartilage.

Regrettably, surgery will now be performed as soon as possible to allow rehabilitation and recovery to commence.

BRFC will support Daniel throughout his recovery, providing the best possible medical care and help him make a successful return to action in 2018.


Qatar spending $655m a week on World Cup projects

Qatar spending $655m a week on World Cup projects, Russia increases 2018 budget by $426m
23 minutes ago

HIGH-spending World Cup 2022 hosts Qatar are splurging almost $US500 million ($AU655m) every week on major infrastructure projects for football?s biggest tournament, the country?s finance minister said on Tuesday.

That eye-watering level of spending could continue until 2021, Ali Shareef Al-Emadi said.

?We are spending close to $500 million per week on capital projects,? he told journalists.

?And this will carry on for the next three to four years to achieve our goal and objective of really getting the country ready for 2022.?

More than $US200 billion ($AU262bn) will be spent in total by the gas-rich Emirate in preparation for 2022.

Emadi said this figure covered not only stadiums but huge and costly projects such as roads, a new airport and hospitals.

?Ninety per cent of the 2022 contracts have already been awarded,? added Emadi.

?That doesn?t mean the stadiums only, we are talking about highways, rail, ports, airports, those are really underway, even hospitals and everything.? He added: ?We are really giving ourselves a good chance of delivering things on time and we don?t want to get in a place that we start painting while people are coming to the country.? Asked if this would make Qatar?s tournament the most expensive World Cup ever, the minister
