A-League side Brisbane Roar sacked Managing Dir MARK KINGSMAN in "another off-field drama" at the club. On Monday, Kingsman wrote on Twitter, "Disappointed to have my employment terminated by @brisbaneroar. Thank you everyone for your support over the past 14 months." New leadership is reportedly "being lined up" by club owner Indonesian conglomerate the Bakrie Group. It said that the club decided to dismiss Kingsman "due to concerns over his performance and the impact on the Roar's financial position and general direction" (AAP, 10/16).
