Birmingham chief Brady slams Yeung board plans

Birmingham City managing director Karren Brady has slammed leading shareholder Carson Yeung's attempt to make Steve McManaman and Fan Zhiyi directors of the club.

Brady, in her column in The Sun, said: "Carson Yeung is back in touch and wants to put Steve McManaman and Fan Zhiyi on our board to represent his 29.9% interest in Birmingham City.

"It means that we will have to hold an EGM, set for February 20, and I have to say, what a waste of time.

"There is no chance of shareholders, including club co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold and the rest of the board, voting for them. All it is doing is creating an unnecessary stir that we could well do without."
