Culina, Jets and FFA settle dispute

Football Federation Australia (FFA), Newcastle and Jason Culina have ended a long-running battle over the A-League club's shock sacking of the former Socceroo.

Culina was dismissed by the Jets on the eve of the 2011-12 A-League season, with the club citing medical concerns over their marquee man's surgically-repaired right knee.

The ensuing wrangle became more complicated when the Jets lodged a complaint under FFA's grievance-resolution regulations in January - claiming the governing body negligently allowed Culina to play for Gold Coast United without appropriate insurance.

Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) chief executive Brendan Schwab declared on Wednesday the parties had reached a resolution.

"The PFA is pleased that FFA, Newcastle Jets and Jason have reached a settlement by mutual agreement, the commercial terms of which are confidential," Schwab said in a statement.

"As a result, Jason's employment agreement with the Jets has also been terminated and he is free to continue his playing career elsewhere in the A-League."

Culina was happy to put the matter to bed and is confident he'll return to the A-League soon.

"I look forward to resuming my playing career as soon as I have completed my rehabilitation, which is proceeding very well," Culina said.

"I would like to acknowledge the efforts of FFA and the Newcastle Jets to achieve a settlement and to avoid further legal proceedings.

"I would also like to thank the PFA for the support it has shown me throughout."

As a result of the resolution, the scheduled June hearings of the National Dispute Resolution Chamber under the A-League Collective Bargaining Agreement will not proceed.
