Melbourne Victory statement

The Club is both saddened and disappointed by comments attributed to Richard Wilson on his exit as a director of the Club today.

Mr Wilson is a foundation director of Melbourne Victory, however at this time the Board along with a number of shareholders welcome his exit, which has been the subject of discussion for some time.

The Club now has an opportunity to move forward in a unified way.  The Board values our shareholders, partners, members and fans and without further distraction, will continue working tirelessly to improve and drive results amidst these challenging times.

The Club will not be commenting further on this matter.
