Phoenix eye English Club

In a release by Wellington Phoenix media, it stated that Wellington Phoenix general manager David Dome would love to bring an English Premier League club to New Zealand next pre-season but says contrary to reports no fixtures have been confirmed.#He said that the club was always on the lookout for quality international opposition.#“I wouldn’t be doing my job if I wasn’t exploring the possibility of bringing quality teams to New Zealand,” Dome said.#“In the past we have brought out LA Galaxy and Boca Juniors, and we have noted the success Australia had last year in getting Premier League teams to play in Sydney and Melbourne.#“Over the past 18 months we have had some options presented to us and there have been on-going discussions with various parties, but it is a big step from discussions to confirmation.#“If a suitable opportunity presents itself, and it works financially as well as from a team perspective we will consider it,” Dome said. #Krishna has signed a short term contract with the Wellington Phoenix which is the lone New Zealand franchise in the A-League. #The former Labasa striker’s renewal of contract will be based on his performance in the remainder of this season. #In the last round of the A-League Phoenix defeated Melbourne Victory 5-0. # Fiji FA MEDIA #
