Souness blasts 'unacceptable' Sullivans


Filed: Monday, 9th October 2017
By: Staff Writer


Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness has accused the son of West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan of undermining Slaven Bilic.

The former Liverpool and Scotland star had plenty to say about boardroom influence in yesterday's Sunday Times, whilst blasting players for holding too much influence over their clubs - to the detriment of Premier League managers.

"The best examples of player power undermining managers in recent seasons are Jose Mourinho at Chelsea and Claudio Ranieri at Leicester, both disgracefully sacked the season after winning the Premier League," wrote Souness.

"Thatís the power of the modern player. If you fall out with a couple of them, you are toast. The board stop valuing your opinion and start to pay attention to the opinion of others.

"Look at the West Ham situation, where you have Jack Sullivan, son of the owner David Sullivan, on social media criticising the managerís selections, substitutions and signings.

"All of that is unacceptable."
