Football Federation Australia vowed to follow up the incident with police and stadium security in the wake of the row and after board members Remo Nogarotto and Joseph Carrozzi pledged to investigate on Twitter.

However this afternoon, they said there were now "conflicting accounts" on what had happened.

"An FFA representative spoke with the fan involved in the incident late last night," an FFA spokesman said.

"FFA also spoke with Police Commanders and the NSW Police Commissioner’s Office this morning and has received multiple stadium security incident reports over the course of this afternoon.

"There are conflicting accounts and a potential misunderstanding of the circumstances that led to the eviction.

"FFA will seek further discussion with stadium management and police to seek clarity around the level of response used to evict a single person. FFA continues to work with all parties, including the fan, to resolve the matter."
