The Daily Mail report that a rather bizarre situation is emerging at St Andrews. Carson Yeung, Birmingham’s biggest shareholder, wants a place on the board for none other than former Liverpool and Real Madrid winger Steve McManaman.
“He (Yeung) is determined to have a voice and has petitioned other shareholders in the public company to ensure his investment is represented on the current board.
Former Liverpool legend McManaman is a director of Grand Top International, the holding company used by Yeung to front the bid. But it seems that Yeung’s overtures will be met with stiff resistance.”
The Hong Kong-based billionaire recently had a takeover bid snubbed by Messrs Gold and Sullivan, although he’s seemingly determined to have his voice heard at the Midlands club. Even if it’s through the medium of scouse.
