I’m sure that they terminated his contract within the available clause(s) within the contract. Not sure they ever provided any comment either, just that Burto and Campo wont be continuing at the club. It was the media that used a word like ‘sacked’, but it was never a quote from a club employee. Burto has a hell of a hide, he was in control of everything football with his best bud Rooo. Pyke fell or was nudged onto his sword and Campo let go as well, it’s bleeding obvious that the review found most fault lay in the footy dept and specifically a couple of the employees. To try and suggest that Admin was a problem is absolutely ridiculous, but then again, it’s that level of arrogance and ignorance that lost him his job in the first place. Impossible to feel sorry for people like that. It’s no surprise that these elite employees that we’re highly respected in the industry haven’t been snapped up by a competitor yet.The problem that the club will face is they breached his contract.
There will have been termination clauses. Probably even one stating that he serves to the pleasure of the board.
If he believes that he has been unfairly or unlawfully dismissed and that’s supported by his contract then he’ll have a leg to stand on.
His other legal avenue may be defamation is something was said that damaged his reputation.
I’m not backing the Firepower investor to have done his homework properly on this one.
