Khelifi departs club on loan

Perth Glory can confirm that it has been instructed by Australian Professional Leagues (APL) to accept a loan offer from another A-League club for midfielder Salim Khelifi.

Khelifi will join the club in question for the remainder of the 2023/24 Isuzu UTE A-League Season (subject to medical and international clearance).

“I want to make it very clear to all our Members, club Partners and fans that this decision is neither the will, nor the want of the club,” said Glory CEO Anthony Radich.

“It is a direct consequence of our inherited financial legacy, but that said, the outcome is still a very difficult one to accept on many levels.

“We understand the disappointment that this will bring to all our key stakeholders and furthermore, the significant impact it will have upon Alen Stajcic and his team (who have been incredibly stoic and resilient) as they look to drive forward into the second half of the season.

“This is a challenging time for the club, but we remain hopeful of a resolution to our ownership situation in the very near future and are deeply appreciative of our loyal and passionate Glory family for their ongoing support.”
