COOK-ING UP A STORM
New Manchester City Executive Chairman Garry Cook has spoken out about the recent reports linking City with a move for striker Jo. Cook claims that City are in negotiations with the player and the Premier League to make sure that, if the transfer does go ahead, it will be above board and legal.
Cook has just returned from seeing Dr Shinawatra in Thailand and commented on a friendly fixture City have pencilled in against Hamburg on July 26th and about absurb tabloid rumours concerning City's club crest.
He said: “We have confirmed a prestigious friendly against Hamburg SV and will be making further announcements on pre-season games and other developments in the next week or so.
“I did see a ridiculous story in an English Sunday newspaper before I left which claimed that there would be a change to the club crest with the image of an elephant being added to it! I want to assure supporters that there is no truth in that whatsoever,” he added.
