West Ham vice chairman Karren Brady has launched an attack on Tottenham’s shareholders, claiming they do not live in the UK and neglect to pay UK tax.
Tottenham owner Joe Lewis is based in the Bahamas and Brady has cited the fact that the Hammers hierachy of Gold and Sullivan are UK based. This is all based around the potential move to the new Olympic stadium.
She said: ”Spurs’ is an attempted smash and grab in our manor, sneaky and of no known benefit to anyone beyond their backers and major shareholders, who by the way are not based in the UK and don’t pay UK tax unlike our owners who have always lived, worked, employed and paid tax here.
‘Even their own fans hate the idea of a multi-mile move. Spurs are trying to muscle in where they are not wanted.’
