Football Federation Australia today concluded its investigation into an alleged incident between national coach Frank Farina and an SBS television journalist after the match between Australia and Iraq at Telstra Stadium on Saturday March 26. The investigation concluded that the conduct of Farina during the incident in question was substantially less than what the FFA is entitled to expect from a person holding the position of the Australian national team coach. As a result the FFA has provided Mr Farina with a formal warning and required him to undergo counselling to prevent similar occurrences in future. The report into the investigation noted that the conduct of the journalist involved is ultimately a matter for his employer. The FFA has acknowledged that Mr Farina and the journalist involved have apologised to each other and have committed to working together professionally in the future.
