Board facing Leicester snub

Filed: Thursday, 3rd May 2018
By: Staff Writer

West Ham United's Board of Directors could be set to receive a frosty welcome from their counterparts at Leicester City this weekend.

KUMB reported back in February how the Foxes had shunned a bid from the Hammers for Islam Slimani as a result of comments made by vice chair Karren Brady regarding chairman Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha in her tabloid column last year.

And it is being suggested that Brady, plus fellow Board members David Gold and David Sullivan could potentially be banned from the Foxes Boardroom on Saturday when the two teams meet in what is a vital match for West Ham, who need at least one more win from their remaining three matches to secure Premier League survival.

This weekend's meeting will represent the first occasion on which West Ham have visited the Midlands club since Brady's column was published in 2017. Despite United's vice chair having since apologised, Srivaddhanaprabha is understood to harbour a grudge.

* In other related news, Leicester City have refused to allow a group of volunteers to collect money for Isla Caton outside the King Power stadium this weekend.

A small band of travelling West Ham supporters have been raising funds at various away venues this season in order to send the three-year-old to America for vital treatment.

However the group have been told by Foxes Liaison Officer Jim Donnelly that they would not be permitted to collect outside the stadium this weekend as the club were holding two other (non-related) collections on the day.
