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."
