Brady involved in fan fracas

The husband of vice-chair Karren Brady is understood to have been involved in a violent disagreement with travelling West Ham fans following yesterday's 3-2 defeat at Wigan.

Paul Peschisolido - who is also the current manager of Burton Albion - is reported to have lost his temper when a supporter approached his wife in their first-class carriage as they returned to the Midlands with their children following the match, which condemned the Irons to relegation.

Differing accounts of the events leading up to Peschisolido's intervention have been given, although all are consistent in claiming that 40-year-old former Sheffield United star had to be physically restrained from attacking the fan.

Brady - whose tenure as vice-chair began just 15 months ago - is no stranger to controversy where Hammers fans are concerned.

Last year she was held culpable for the decision to remove complimentory season tickets from the family of John Lyall, whilst only last week she told Hammers fans to 'bog off' following her absence from the recent 2-1 defeat at Manchester City.
