The Sun reports that Luton boss Kevin Blackwell has fired a shot at Liverpool co-owner Tom Hicks. Blackwell is disgusted by the fact that Tom Hicks admitted to courting Jurgen Klinnsmann behind Benitez’ back, and claims that the Liverpool paymaster is a devious swine. Blackwell said:
“Football is losing all credibility. It’s a disgrace that Tom Hicks has the cheek to go behind Rafa’s back and speak to someone about his job.
“Rafa’s a dead man walking.
“As managers, we accept we’ll lose our job at some stage but there is a way of doing it.
“If the morals of an alley cat persist in the boardroom, then you can’t expect players to show leadership on and off the pitch.
“The board of directors are normally pillars of the community and should set good standards.”
So is Blackwell right, and is Tom Hicks really unusual when you look at his Premier League peers? People like Thaksin Shinawatra, Roman Abramovich, and Daniel Levy aren’t exactly saints either!
