MICHELOTTI'S three-man management team face a lifetime ban from Hongkong soccer unless they pay four months' outstanding wages to their players by the end of the month. And the Po Chai Pills Sports Association, the club Michelotti use as their commercial vehicle in local soccer, could be expelled as a member of the Hongkong Football Association as an example to other clubs. Michelotti chairman Alfred Yuen Kwok-fan, president Chan Mo-wang and secretary Sek Kam-wah were given the ultimatum by the HKFA after they broke another pledge yesterday to pay more than $400,000 in debts to their foreign players. But FA chairman Victor Hui Chun-fai said his association was virtually powerless to guarantee that the players, including the local professionals, would receive their wages. ''All we can do is to bar the three Michelotti office-bearers. There is nothing in our constitution that gives us power over Michelotti. They are not even association members. ''We may consider expelling Po Chai, but that has not been suggested yet.'' Yuen had summoned the three foreign players, John Bottomley, Alan Walsh and Tony Sealy, to the association headquarters at noon yesterday, promising full payment and an announcement of a new backer for next season. However no Michelotti representative turned up, prompting the FA to include the issue in their agenda for last night's monthly meeting. In between, president Chan arrived at the association headquarters pleading for more time. He reportedly told FA secretary Vincent Yuen Man-chuen that Michelotti were having talks with potential sponsors and they would pay the players by the end of the month. It is believed that a backer is unwilling to support Michelotti until they can pay off their current debts. Two foreign players, Bottomley and Walsh, are keen to return to England as early as possible and have asked Vincent Yuen to arrange a meeting with Michelotti representatives on Friday. Bottomley has already booked his flight and is due to return to the UK on Saturday. Walsh also wants to leave on Saturday, but is virtually down to his last cent and has asked Vincent Yuen to help him raise $24,000 for air tickets for himself, his wife and four children. ''We just cannot wait any longer and we can only hope that the FA Council can do something about it,'' said Walsh. Both players were last night in contact with the Mick McGuire of the Professional Footballers' Association in England. Said Bottomley: ''The PFA are also helping us with flights. Mick spoke to Vincent and told him that the PFA hope they realise the urgency of the situation. ''If worse came to worse, we could go to FIFA.'' Walsh, Bottomley and Sealy also went to the Labour Tribunal yesterday morning for advice. Walsh said: ''The labour officer told us the Michelotti management had phoned them on Monday and asked to be given another two weeks to settle our payments. ''The officer said they will try to arrange a meeting for us with the Michelotti management on July 2 if we still haven't been paid. Hopefully, we can be back in Britain by then.'' Po Chai founder Lee Leung-nang rejected claims that the club be held responsible for Michelotti's failure to honour their contracts with the players. He said: ''The players signed a contract with Michelotti and not with the Po Chai Pills Sports Association. ''If Michelotti withdraw, then control of the club should be returned to me.''
