West Ham chief Brady recalls 'interesting' club offer from QPR owner Fernandes

West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has revealed how QPR owner Tony Fernandes made an offer for one of the clubs she worked for.

Brady claims that Fernandes came to her and West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan, offering to run their club in return for 50 per cent ownership, on the premise that his business nous would see profits rocket.

However, with QPR announcing this week that the club lost £65million last year, Brady appeared to poke fun at Fernandes.

In her weekly column for The Sun, Brady wrote: "Whenever I hear the name Tony Fernandes I do have to smile. He once offered David Sullivan and I the chance to go into business with him.

"He offered to buy half our club for nothing, on the basis that it would be worth more with him running it. We politely declined!"
