Fulham determined to bring down Premier League chairman Richards

Fulham are pursuing a case against Premier League chairman Sir David Richards.

Fulham are pursuing a case against Premier League chairman Sir David Richards.

The Sun says the West London club are refusing to accept the findings of an internal Premier League investigation into Richards' role in Peter Crouch's £9million move from Portsmouth to Spurs in July last year.

And they want to know if this is an isolated case or whether Premier League chairman Richards might have intervened in other transfer deals.

Craven Cottage chief executive officer Alistair Mackintosh yesterday wrote to the chairman and chief executive of every Premier League club.

He was writing under instruction from Fulham chairman Mohamed Al Fayed.

As well as explaining Fulham's action, McIntosh also included a copy of their petition to the Companies Court.

And he asked if any of the clubs would be willing to meet Fulham's solicitor to provide them with information and evidence which could assist them in their case.

McIntosh was responding to an e-mail sent out by Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore on Tuesday evening outlining Fulham's complaint against Richards.

Scudamore admitted that Fulham had made an official complaint about Richards' involvement in the Crouch deal. It was the first time anyone was made aware of a case which had been dragging on for nearly 11 months.
