MCFC Release Club Statement On Emailgate

MCFC Release Club Statement On Emailgate



The Sun newspaper's Shaun Custis went to press today publishing allegations regarding an email exchange between City and Nedum Onuoha's mother 11 months ago...

Details of the exchange printed in The Sun which allegedly involve City CEO Garry Cook, Football Administration Officer Brian Marwood and Dr. Anthonia Onuoha suggest that Cook belittled Dr. Onuoha's serious illness in an email meant for Marwood but which was received by Dr. Onuoha in error. Cook denies he sent the email and states that his account was hacked during his absence in South Africa at that time.

Tonight, City have issued the following statement:

Mon 05 Sep 2011, 6:59PM: 'Following allegations made to the football club by Dr Anthonia Onuoha, subsequently reported in today`s media, the Club can confirm that a board led review has been launched into the matter.'

All at VMC wish Dr. Onuoha a full recovery and hope that the matter will be resolved as soon as possible.

Cook is nothing but a slug in a suit (see Kenyon), and he's careless too. Let's see him out of job by the morning, for the good of the sport. If I hacked his email account, I'd have done a better job of discrediting him than that.

Funny that this e-mail exchange, which happened 11 months ago, should only come to light now that Kia Joorabchian has started representing Nedum Onuoha. Stinks of a stitch-up to me, and let's face it, the media know Cook is a soft target, given their previous obsessions with him.

we wish Dr Onuaha a very speedy recovery,and as she was representing her son in a very professional manner, i wish she would tell her son that his choice of agent/manager, leaves a lot to be desired, and maybe he might get more of a chance in a city shirt if he did drop the car salesman, and when his mother is better/cured(hopefully) she can resume her rope as his agent..as for the e-mail scandal this is wrong and IF cook is found guilty he must face the consquences and if this means losing his job so be it, but lets be 100% sure before we go off a story in the Scum.....

Say what you will about his etiquette but Cook cares about the fans more than almost any CEO in football. Read Dan Taylor's op-ed in The Guardian for some examples on how.
