Assem Allam not happy with protesters
Hull City owner Assem Allam has voiced his displeasure at the club’s fans after they set up a group protesting against the idea of changing their name to ‘Hull City Tigers’.
Allam took over the club in 2010, and after their promotion to the Premier League this Summer, he opened up the idea of re-branding the club by adding ‘Tigers’ to their name.
However, the majority of the fans are not happy with the idea change and have started protesting against the owner, which has not gone down well as in a recent interview, he told the protesters to ‘go and die’.
“They can die as soon as they want, as long as they leave the club for the majority who just want to watch good football.”
“How can they call themselves fans, these hooligans, this militant minority, when they disturb and distract the players while taking away the rights of others to watch the football, and of companies who have paid good money for advertising?”
