Former Leeds United commercial director and now ex-Hull City chairman Adam
Pearson has denied he will use the £10 million he received for the
surprise sale of Hull City to buy a stake in his former club.
Pearson sucinctly told the BBC, "To be honest, I think we can put
this to bed."
When Pearson left Ridsdale The Clown at the helm of Leeds
United six years ago, he went off and lived his own dream that he shared
with the Hull City fans. He led the Tigers from financial and footballing
obscurity to the Championship, financial stability and the impressive
KC Stadium that is wisely shared, along with the costs, with Hull RLFC.
It is a shame that Ken Bates cannot persuade talent of the like of Adam
Pearson onto the new board of directors of Leeds United.
