Former Crystal Palace chairman, Simon Jordan, has hit out at new Manchester United CEO Richard Arnold for his leaked controversial remarks to fans at a pub.
According to The Sun, Arnold met with a dozen fans at a Cheshire pub after being tipped off about a fan protest.
The Red Devils chief was filmed admitting that the club “f*****g burned through cash under predecessor Ed Woodward.
He also claimed that the year prior had been a “f*****g nightmare” at Old Trafford.
Speaking to TalkSPORT, Jordan could barely contain his disbelief at the naivety of Arnold’s comments, asking what the matter with him is.
He said, “Richard Arnold sat in that meeting. If you are that stupid and that gormless and that naive and that wet behind the ears, you are going to sit there and think that what you are saying isn’t going to find its way into the public domain, even by a regurgitation of someone verbally giving back what you have said or someone recording it, what the hell is the matter with you?”
Jordan’s co-host Jim White then suggested that Arnold may have expected the chat to stay behind closed doors “in good faith,” to which Jordan replied: “Then he’s a gormless buffoon, then, isn’t he?”
