Support Team Not Jeer Old Owners says McLeish

Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish is asking Blues fans not to give any stick to former owners David Gold and David Sullivan when his team take on West Ham on Saturday.

The pair sold Birmingham after 17 years of ownership and took on the task of reviving West Ham.

McLeish feels Gold and Sullivan should be commended for the good work they did while at St Andrews. He would though however like fans to concentrate on backing his players instead of giving their attention to the previous owners.

McLeish told the Mail: 'I don't know what reception they will get, it's not for me to say. But I've got a lot of respect for them, the job they did for this club.

'They brought the club up from the bones of their backsides to being a pretty decent outfit without getting that real consistency of the Premier League.


He added: 'They never let the spending get out of hand. The fans got a little bit annoyed that there wasn't enough investment but that is another story.

'The Birmingham fans have been renowned for their hostility over the years, not in a nasty way, but in making people feel uncomfortable on the pitch.'
