Chris Goulding’s manager, Daniel Moldovan, has confirmed he may seek legal action, if FIBA sanctions handed down to Filipino players are inadequate, after a wild brawl between Australia and the Philippines.
In the third quarter, with the Boomers leading 79-48, Melbourne United star Chris Goulding was floored by an elbow, before Australian teammate Daniel Kickert remonstrated with an elbow of his own.
From there, all hell broke loose, with the fight spilling off the court and into the crowd, with a multitude of other individuals getting involved.
“To see not a single security guard step in and protect anybody is hard to for me to even fathom,” Moldovan told SEN Breakfast.
“I have to see what FIBA does. If FIBA’s response isn’t adequate, I’m going to pursue my own legal avenues to protect my client.
“Serious measures need to put in place before I comfortably send players to these environments again.”
