Gold confident Yeung won't interfere with Birmingham team matters

Birmingham chairman David Gold is adamant Carson Yeung will not interfere in team affairs if he completes a takeover at St Andrews.

The Hong Kong billionaire acquired a 29.9% stake in Blues last month, with the prospect he will take over the club at some stage in the future.

However, there are claims Yeung likes to have a say in how matters are run on the pitch amid reports he became involved in team matters at Hong Kong Rangers, where he used to be chairman.

City boss Steve Bruce has already indicated he would probably quit if Yeung were to do something similar at St Andrews.

Yet Gold said: "From all the indications and meetings I've had with him, I believe he will work very well with the existing regime at the club.

"Mr Yeung would be fully aware that interference in clubs is not taken too kindly in the Premier League."
