Manchester City Muddle Along Without Poor Garry Cook’s iPad And Pretty Rich Nedum Onuoha

SO. It turns out that Manchester City can survive without Garry Cook, who resigned as chief executive Garry Cook following an email sent from this online address that most of the pundits agree mocked Nedum Onuoha’s mother Dr Anthonia’s cancer.

City write:

“[We] can confirm that there is foundation to Dr Onuoha’s allegations and the chairman has written to apologise to Dr Onuoha for any distress caused.”

Now City have to investigate this disgusting behaviour by a member of their staff and sack whoever wrote that e-mail.

Have to. Wright has spoken. They. Have. To.

They can’t sweep this one under the carpet. Nor can the FA and the Premier League.
