Alex McLeish has fallen out with Birmingham City board members, it has been revealed.
The Daily Mail says McLeish has fallen out with his Birmingham board after being accused of greed over contract talks.
The former Scotland manager is furious about a jibe by vice-chairman Peter Pannu, right-hand man of owner Carson Yeung, that he is 'no Mourinho'.
Talks on a new contract for McLeish, who won promotion and then took the club to ninth place on a shoestring budget last season, have been going on for months without any sign of agreement.
He is currently on around £750,000 a year and wants a rise to £1million, but Pannu said: "He is asking for a very large amount of money which I was not prepared to meet."
