Malaysian Businessman Denies Plans To Buy West Ham United

Malaysian entrepreneur Tony Fernandes (AirAsia Airlines) has ruled out making a bid for West Ham.

Fernandes is a Hammers fan and has been linked with the club ever since current owners CB Holdings announced they were looking for a buyer.

When asked if he had made a bid for the Upton Park club, Fernandes told the Evening Standard: “No, not any time soon. I’ve got my hands full setting up a Formula One team (Lotus team) so it’s not something I’m going to do.

“I do worry about the future of West Ham though. They’re in a precarious situation and have been badly managed with a poor balance sheet.

“The fans, of which I’m one, deserve better but it’s not particularly tempting for a buyer.”
