McLeish refutes Daily Mail story
Nottingham Forest manager Alex McLeish has moved quickly to deny reports that a fall-out with his chairman nearly cost him his job.
The Daily Mail yesterday published a story claiming he and Fawaz Al-Hasawi had a heated exchange over transfer funds that left the Scot’s position under severe threat.
But McLeish has released a statement saying there are no grounds to the allegations:
‘There is no truth in the Daily Mail story about myself and the chairman. None whatsoever.
‘Furthermore, I would like to point out that the Human Rights Act does not entitle illegal immigrants to free cars, the metric system does not desecrate the memory of Princess Diana, iPhone apps will not give you cancer, house prices are not going to rise because of the Higgs Boson particle and the trade unions are not in the pay of paedophile school teachers.
‘In fact it should be blatantly obvious to anyone with a brain that everything in the Daily Mail is entirely fictional and published solely for the sake of people who like to get angry for no good reason.
‘Now, stop wasting my time when I should be spending this enormous transfer budget Fawaz has given me.’
