Hull City owner Assem Allam has yet again threatened to quit the club if the FA don't allow the name change of the club to go through.

Allam suggested Hull City change their name to become more of a global brand a suggestion that sparked wide scale protests across hulls fan base and on the day the club are reportedly closing in on the signings of Shane Long and Nikica Jelavic brings more unrest to the East Yorkshire club.

Assem has seemed to step up his campaign for the name change and in an interview with Sky Sports News, he said: “No one on earth is allowed to question my business decisions. I won’t allow it. I can give you my CV to give you comfort, for what I do in business….I’m here to save the club and manage the club for the benefit of the community.

"It will never, never be the other way round – that the community manage it for me, But if the community say go away, I promise to go away with 24 hours."

The Egyptian businessman has owned the club since 2010 and has worked on making the club a Premier League team in recent time. 

The move sparks a resemblance to Cardiff owner Vincent Tan who, after taking over the club, changed the team's shirt colour in an attempt to market the club much to the fans disapproval.

The disappointment of Hull fans with the planned go ahead will have to go on hold as they face a battle against Norwich at the weekend.
