Yeung: I'm entitled to Birmingham board presence

Birmingham City's largest shareholder Carson Yeung remains determined to install Steve McManaman as a director.

Yeung paid £15million for a 29.9 per cent stake in City last summer with a scheme to make the Premier League outfit huge in China.

But the Far East-based businessman, whose plans of completing a £50m buyout are on hold, has been given no say in the running of the club by joint-majority shareholders David Sullivan and the Gold brothers.

Now fireworks are expected at tomorrow's combined AGM and EGM.

Yeung's right-hand man Sammy Yu said: "Since the first day when we spent so much money - above the market price - we don't feel we have been getting enough information from the club. We want to improve our communication.

"We feel entitled to a place on the board and could help the club so after the EGM we will consider our next step."
