Sullivan fires back in Carvalho row


Filed: Monday, 4th September 2017
By: Staff Writer


West Ham's Board are preparing to sue Portuguese club Sporting after director Nuno Saraiva referred to David Sullivan a "liar".

The club's Communications Director branded Sullivan as a "parasite" responsible for "intellectual pornography" in a broadside that followed a statement by Sullivan claiming that he had rejected the oportunity to sign William Carlvaho on transfer deadline day.

And the Sullivan camp - who insist they possess email evidence of a £25million bid made on 10 August to support their claims - have reacted to Saraiva's comment by insisting they will begin legal proceedings against the Portuguese club.

"West Ham are commencing legal proceedings against the communications director of Sporting Lisbon as a written offer for the player was made to Bruno de Carvalho the president of Sporting Lisbon," confirmed David Sullivan Jnr via social media.

"To say we never made an offer is nonsense and serious libel. Our bid was submitted via the player’s agent and our negotiators in Portugal. We also put in a written bid."

Regardless of the outcome, West Ham remain without a player that could have proved to be a major success in the Premier League this season - and stand little chance of resurrecting the deal in January, as a result of the accusations from both sides.
