Cobb quits as Roar A-League crisis widens

NZN 17/08/2016 Vince Rugari

Daniel Cobb has quit as Brisbane's managing director and says he will submit a final "take it or leave it" offer to buy the A-League club from their Indonesian owners.

In an escalation of the crisis surrounding the three-time A-League champions, Cobb claimed he had paid the Roar's bills - including player and staff wages - out of his own pocket for the past three days but was no longer willing to work with the Bakrie Group.

It comes after Cobb's accusations that the Bakries had reneged on a promise to inject $1.1 million into the club as agreed when he became managing director two months ago, leaving the Roar in a precarious financial position.
