Ridsdale bemused by McKenzie claims

Published Add your comment

Former Leeds chairman Peter Ridsdale is convinced he has been the victim of an Elland Road smear campaign.

Risdale disputes totally the theory that financial troubles triggered the Yorkshire club´s relegation from the Premier League in 2004 - long after he had been succeeded as chairman by Professor John McKenziea and he has now decided to speak out against McKenzie´s allegations of reckless financial behaviour, including the infamous goldfish expenditure.

"To suggest the biggest single mistake I made - and I made plenty - was to have two goldfish tanks, which cost £200 per annum, was just laughable," said Ridsdale. "Yet it became a signal of my extravagance and largesse. I am bemused by it."
