Sully: Takeover talk nonsense

Allardyce was unveiled as the man Sullivan and partner David Gold
had chosen to spearhead the club’s attempts to return to the
Premier League on Wednesday. He agreed a two-year deal with the
Upton Park club but, hours after his appointment, businessman Tony
Fernandes wrote on his Twitter account that he was making a bid for
the club. Having already been sacked by owners that did not employ
him twice, Allardyce expressed his surprise at the news, but
Sullivan says he has nothing to worry about. He told The Sun: “The
whole thing is nonsense. I can assure Sam he has an unbreakable
two-year contract and he is the perfect man for the job. “I can
only think the motivation for this ‘takeover’ bid is PR. If there
was a genuine Russian billionaire out there willing to pump
hundreds of billions of pounds into West Ham then we’d step aside
for the good of the club. “But when someone offers to buy your club
for buttons and does it via Twitter it is most unhelpful at a time
when we are trying to rebuild West Ham.”
