Adelaide United would like to make the following statement regarding the future of Tarek Elrich.
As a result of numerous rumours from sources outside of South Australia, Adelaide United would like to end all speculation around the future of the Club’s defender, Tarek Elrich.
Elrich, who still has two years left on his current contract with the Reds, is an important player within the squad and was integral in the Club’s Westfield FFA Cup success of 2014 and also the historic Premiership and Championship double from last season.
The Club’s General Manager of Football Operations, Ante Kovacevic, said: “The rumours surrounding Tarek’s future at Adelaide United are all false.
“Tarek is a very important and valued member of our football club who has the utmost respect of his teammates, coaches, the Adelaide United Board, and staff.
“We are not going to let a player of Tarek’s quality and character leave us and nor does he want to.”
Adelaide United will be making no further comment.
