As if the drama of A-League finals weren’t enough, Sydney FC must now play their do-or-die clash against the Wellington Phoenix without goalkeeper Liam Reddy, who was expected to start on the bench for tomorrow night’s match.

The star goalkeeper was sent home in disgrace from the camp in Wellington for reportedly being drunk on the team flight over to New Zealand.

Reddy will be suspended by the club until at least next week, where they will then decide his fate. He has also been issued a breach notice by the A-League for breaching Section 6.1 of the National Code of Conduct.

Sydney FC have issued a brief statement stating the nature of the incident, but refusing to comment on any other aspect of the issue.

Liam Reddy is currently one of the most discussed topics on Twitter in Sydney, as disgruntled fans share their disappointment in the goalkeeper.

He will be replaced by Ryan Norval on the bench, who was part of Sydney’s Round 3 win over Adelaide United.
