Perth Glory owners today moved to dismiss speculation that they have appointed former player Stan Lazaridis to the position of Football Director.

Discussions between Glory co-owners Mr Tony Sage and Mr Brett McKeon are on-going with Lazaridis about a possible position on the club-s board however any potential role for Lazaridis will not incorporate a direct involvement in the day to day running of the football department.

Head Coach Dave Mitchell will continue to make all decisions in relation to strategy and player recruitment and retains the full support of club owners, management and players to lead the club to success.

Mr Sage and Mr McKeon said they believed Lazaridis is committed to a prosperous future for Perth Glory and football in Western Australia however no agreement about the former Socceroos- involvement has been reached.
