North appeared to foul Bruno Fornaroli during the second half of last Saturday night’s A-League match which led to the City ace approaching the Roar veteran who hit the turf portraying he had been fouled by Fornaroli.

The incident did not draw a penalty with City scoring as North pretended to be injured which has since drawn the ire of fans and players alike.

Roar said North was sorry for his actions which led to a 1-1 draw.

“North is sincerely apologetic to the Club, playing group and supporters for letting game-related emotions get the better of him causing an error of judgement during the match. Brisbane Roar’s Vice Captain is disappointed with his actions,” the club said in a statement.

“As a Club, we do not condone simulation. 

“Brisbane Roar Football Club recognise that this is an isolated incident and believe North is an excellent leader and ambassador of our Club and our game. This matter has been dealt with internally.”
