Cardiff City FC have today released a statement to clarify the longstanding debt arrangements and used the occasion to aim a far from subtle blast at former owner Sam Hammam and the mysterious Langston company he represents.
The statement also went on to confirm there is no chance of Hammam returning to the club in any capacity. hammam has his sympethisers and supporters remaining at the club - and a growing voice has been heard in support of a return, carefully orchestrated by his remaining loyalists. Some amongst us have been 'mugs', others 'bigger mugs' but most have learnt our lesson and have no love or trust remaining for Hammam or his exuberent but controlling character.
CCFC have been in regular contact with Hammam to discuss re-negotiation of the loan but he has so far held out, possibly in the hope that he could return to the club in some capacity. Today's statment was a clear attempt by the Cardiff City board to tip Hammam's hand and try to force a resolution.
The statement on the official CCFC page read:
'Reaching a satisfactory agreement with Langston remains the Clubs prime focus but continues to prove difficult in light of the stance taken by Mr Sam Hammam representing Langston, notwithstanding the number of alternatives being offered by the Club.'
'In order to put the record straight we can also reassure the supporters of the Club that as part of these negotiations, Mr Sam Hammam representatives will not return in a capacity as Director of football or something similar.'
Further, the statement went on to say that third party accountants had been instructed to further clarify the loan and the circumstances around it. After years of legal negotiations and a high profile court case, this has surely been done already but does re-enforce the club's determination to stand firm on the matter.
It would appear that Hammam is being obstructive. perhaps thats harsh and he is merely holding out for the money he is owed but either way, this is not in the best interests of CCFC and it is re-assuring that our Malaysian investors remain committed to the resolution of this millstone around Cardiff City's neck.
