He has thanked the Wellington Phoenix for the five years and says if he was going to stay in the A-League then he would have stayed on with the Nix.
The repeated claim by David Dome about the Phoenix’s offer for Roy Krishna needs to be questioned.
Not suggesting they didn’t offer him a 3-year deal, but…
It is a fact that as of today, the Phoenix can only guarantee a one-year contract, given the status of their licence.
