No idea on the details of the original transfer to Celtic, but we'd be entitled to a solidarity payment regardless. Solidarity payment is 5% of the proceeds divided amongst his former clubs from the age of 12-23, so we'd be entitled to something like 20% of 5% of the transfer fee or potentially $280,000 or so if he went for $28 million. Hopefully we included ironclad clauses that didn't expire after a set time or when he re-signed with Celtic that mean we get 10 or 20%, but at least we'd get something.Do we get any sell ons if Tommy Rogic moves to Zenit for $28mill? It would nice if we still had a 10-20% of profit. Would set our season up nicely
Unfortunately I believe the solidarity system isnt enforced by fifa or associations and players and clubs are often pressured to give them up. Tommy might have the ability to resist because he's a desirable player.No idea on the details of the original transfer to Celtic, but we'd be entitled to a solidarity payment regardless.

edit to my previous. In doing a quick read, its the US that has the problem as solidarties violate some US law on child labour. FIFA had a big meeting in 2017/8 and it seems everywhere else its all systems go and enforced. 5% of transfer is split between clubs for 12-21 age training.Yeah, it's definitely a problem that FIFA isn't particularly fussed with and it does require the club to be on the ball to chase up the payment, but the good thing is we are entitled to it. I think it's a bigger issue for junior clubs without the resources that professional clubs have (well, most professional clubs...). We should in theory have an easier time claiming it than other clubs, but it definitely does depend on us being proactive and Celtic being willing to do the right thing.
WELL...that’s Arnies GF winning crew just about re-assembled innit ?John Crawley joins Caltex Socceroos coaching staff
Football Federation Australia (FFA) is pleased to announce that highly regarded goalkeeper coach John Crawley has joined the Caltex Socceroos coaching staff on a permanent basis through to the end of Australia’s 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign.
Crawley, who has enjoyed long periods of success coaching some of Australia’s top custodians at Sydney FC and Central Coast Mariners in the Hyundai A-League, will now move into a position that will see him mentor Australia’s senior men’s national team shot-stoppers.
Crawley joined the Caltex Socceroos on a preliminary basis for the team’s most recent camp in Busan, Korea Republic, and has now been installed permanently.
The former Colo-Colo player said that it is an honour for him to be shifting to Australia’s national team set-up after 14 successful seasons involved with Hyundai A-League clubs.
“I enjoyed my time with Sydney FC and before that Central Coast Mariners, but the timing feels right to step away from club football and work in a new environment,” Crawley said.
“Travelling with the Socceroos to the most recent camp in Korea Republic was a fantastic experience, and it was great to work with both Andrew (Redmayne) and Lawrence (Thomas).

“We have some very high level goalkeepers including Mat (Ryan), Danny (Vukovic) and Mitch (Langerak) playing abroad, and my focus during my time with the national team will be to help them advance their game as well as help to develop the pool of talent able to represent Australia on the international stage.”
Caltex Socceroos Head Coach Graham Arnold said that Crawley will be a great addition to Australia’s coaching staff.
“John Crawley’s reputation in honing top class Australian goalkeepers is second to none,” Arnold said. “I’m delighted to welcome John, who I worked with at both Central Coast and Sydney FC, to our staff, and know that he will make a great contribution to the Socceroos over the coming years.”
“John’s work ethic and passion for developing Australian goalkeepers made him an outstanding candidate for the role, and I know the goalkeepers currently associated with the Socceroos are pleased with his appointment,” he said.
