Barmby fails with Tigers appeal

Published Add your comment

Nick Barmby has lost his appeal against the decision to sack him as Hull manager.

Tigers chairman Assem Allam has backed the verdict of vice-chairman and son Ehab Allam to dispose of Barmby's services earlier this month. Barmby was initially suspended on April 30 over comments made about the npower Championship club's finances and a lack of funds made available to strengthen during the January transfer window.

It was announced on May 8 that Barmby had been sacked after six months in charge of his hometown outfit, a decision the 38-year-old subsequently appealed. But that has been rejected by Assem Allam following a hearing between him and Barmby.
