Speaking exclusively to FFC about Wednesday’s future, the retired Premier League footballer said:
“I’ve heard reports this week that he wants £160m for the football club. Now, he paid £37m for the club, he’s subsequently sold the stadium to himself that’s now on a 30-year lease at £2.5m a year, which is going to be a massive cost for a League One club to pay £2.5m a year to play football at your own stadium.
“And all of a sudden he wants £160m because he says that’s what he’s put in? Well, it doesn’t work like that. It doesn’t work like that.”
Indeed, it is a figure you cannot see anyone paying, whileis that he takes full responsibility for Wednesday’s relegation and aims to continue at the club.
