Wanderers may boycott Club World Cup over money

WESTERN Sydney players have threatened to boycott the Club World Cup in Morocco as Wanderers management plays hard ball over what prize money will be given to the team.

It is believed the players have been offered 10% of the minimum $A1.2 million prize money the club will earn for making the tournament, following its win in the Asian Champions League.

But Professional Footballers Australia chief executive Adam Vivian said in a statement the players believed that was not enough and they were considering their participation in the event.

"The players have made every attempt to reach an agreement on a fair and equitable share of the prize money," the statement read. "Despite these intentions the club has consistently refused to negotiate in good faith."

The Wanderers are due to play Mexican club Cruz Azul FC on Sunday morning, with the winner to take on Spanish superpower Real Madrid.
