Preston Haskell Expresses Interest For Coventry City
Apr 8 13
Preston Haskell IV insists he's "deadly serious" about taking over Coventry City Football Club Limited (CCFC). Haskell said: "I'm deadly serious about doing this and want to get it done as soon as possible." Former Vice Chairman Gary Hoffman and suspended life President Joe Elliott are leading the takeover bid on behalf of the Preston Haskell and have written to the administrator of Coventry City FC Ltd, Paul Appleton, expressing an interest in acquiring the football club as soon as possible. Haskell was joined by his business associate and right-hand man Ted Sullivan. "Preston is very interested in Coventry City Football Club Ltd," said Elliott who admitted that there remains uncertainty over where the golden share is held - effectively City's license to operate in the Football League. "We have made an approach to the administrator which he has come back to us and we are seeking a meeting as soon as possible in London to move things on as quickly as we can. We need to understand what is in Coventry City FC Ltd, the company that is in administration, and that's why at this moment in time we will be dealing purely with the administrator." Hoffman added: "The administrator has acknowledged our expression of interest and intent and said he will come back to us when things are clarified." Hoffman and Elliott said that there have been no conversations with City owners Sisu Capital Limited. "At the moment it is our only intention to deal with Coventry City FC Ltd where it is understood from the Football League and the Football Association where the golden share is, which is Coventry City's heart, breathing and living body," said Elliott. Hoffman added: "If that turned out not to be the case we would have to review what we do next, but our assumption is that the company in administration is CCFC Ltd. But if it turns out that it's not what we think it is then we will have to review the situation." Hoffman said: "We'd prefer not to comment on that at this stage but it is safe to say that whether you are a fan or an observer in this, you look at models in the football world and it will only work if the football club and stadium come together. We need to be clear that the football club and stadium go hand in hand, and that's very important. But at the moment, the position we're in with CCFC Ltd having gone into administration we have written to the administrator expressing our interest in acquiring the football club and the assets within it. We don't want to raise expectations too much as we feel we've been a little bit guilty of that in the past. Now we want to concentrate on finding a clear way forward. We have spent a lot of time with Preston and met with supporters and there are two important things. One is the relationship between the football club and the stadium, and indeed the city of Coventry and helping to regenerate that - we're all interested in that. Preston gets that vision. And the other thing is that in terms of fan involvement he is very clear that he wants to be as open and transparent as we can. We have been quiet for a long time and had some criticism for that but I hope people will understand why we have after an initial false start. Preston wants openness and fan involvement and we want to make sure the fans have the opportunity to have a share in the football club and also attend board meetings." Elliott, who would be reinstalled as chairman if a takeover was successful, added: "Gary and I will take the lead on this and lead in the way we know the football club should be. Preston has a huge understanding of how football clubs work in this country and we believe that his ideas fit in very much with ours and would work very well with the fans involved." Hoffman said: "Above all, Preston has said he is serious and wants to move as quickly as possible. That's key because we are not far off the end of the season and we want to make sure that we start next season with a clean sheet and get going forward. So momentum is very important and we'll be contacting the administrator again this week to try to get something understood on our timeline, which is very tight."
