Sydney AFL club boss Andrew Ireland believes Adam Goodes will return to play out the rest of the AFL season despite the booing controversy.
The dual Brownlow medallist’s AFL future remains unclear after he was granted indefinite leave by the club on Wednesday, meaning he will at least miss the Swans’ clash with Adelaide this weekend.
The dual Brownlow Medallist is so upset by the persistent booing he has endured that he is said to be considering his future in the game.
“My gut feel is that he’ll want to play, but he’s obviously doing some contemplating away from the game at the moment,” Ireland told reporters in Sydney on Thursday.
“We hope that with a few days away he’ll be in the frame of mind that he’ll continue his great AFL career.”
