Aussie Investor Serious About Hajduk Split Purchase

Australian businessman Matt Tomas says that he will arrive in Croatia to make a formal offer for Hajduk Split football club within the next 20 days, reports daily Slobodna Dalmacija.

Melbourne-based Tomas, who is of Croatian descent and owns a crane company in Australia, will look over the clubs books and meet with President Marin Brbic before making an offer for the club.

“Soon as I arrive I will ask to look over the books at Hajduk and see what state ‘our’ club is in. Then I will make an offer how much it is worth. That is how it goes. I can not guess, but I need first to see the financials and I will make an offer,” said Tomas, before adding ‘Dont worry about my money”, when quizzed if he had enough cash to buy the club. Tomas, who was a former chairmen of the Melbourne Knights football club in Australia which produced players such as Mark Viduka and Joe Simunic, says that he wants to ‘return home’ and invest in ‘his’ Hajduk Split club. Last month Split Mayor Ivo Baldasar turned down an offer to purchase the club from an American consortium.
