The Daily Telegraph‘s ‘Football For Sale’ investigation continues today as Barnsley’s assistant coach Tommy Wright was revealed to have accepted a £5,000 cash bung.
This was to help fake Far East investors position players into his club. Wright was, yet again, caught on camera by undercover reporters posing as fake investors.
QPR manager Jimmy Floyd Hasslebaink has also been named in the investigation, cited as requesting a £55,000 fee to work for the Far East firm.
The 44-year-old was documented asking the fake investors to “come up with a nice figure” for a role which involved travelling to Singapore on a number of trips to confirm deals.
However, QPR representatives have respectfully defended Hasslebaink in a state of “thorough internal investigation” saying, “We have every confidence in our manager and the robust systems and processes the club has in place.”
Stay tuned to the Daily Telegraph for further manager reveals this week and catch up on everything they’ve unleashed so far right here.
