Australian FFA blocked Pandev's move to Western Sydney Wanderers

The FFA have reportedly blocked the move of Genoa attacker Goran Pandev to Western Sydney Wanderers.

According to Italian news outlet TUTTOmercato, the Wanderers tabled a two-year deal to the Macedonian, only for the FFA to block any deal due to reported salary cap issues.

The Wanderers this week confirmed the signing of Ryan Griffiths to bolster the club’s attacking stocks, following rumoured interest in Robbie Keane, Dimitar Berbatov and Eduardo among others.

Pandev is currently plying his trade with Genoa in the Serie A, having featured 12 times in the league this season.

The 33-year-old has spent the majority of his time in Italy with spells with the likes of Inter Milan, Lazio and Napoli.

He is the captain of the Macedonian national team, and is the country’s all-time top scorer with 27 goals.
The report does not suggest this move was blocked in regards to the guest marquee rule, but due to salary cap reasons.

This is certainly disappointing news for the Macedonians living in Sydney.
