Curbishley: "Klubeigentümer sind ahnungslos"

Alan Curbishley, seit 13. Dezember 2006 West Ham-Manager und zuvor 15 Jahre lang bei Charlton, hat sich laut tribalfootball.com kritisch zu den zahlreichen ausländischen Eigentümern von Premier League Klubs sowie deren Ungeduld und unrealistischen Erwartungen geäußert.
Der West Ham Manager (im Bild mit West Hams 5 %-Aktionär Eggert Magnusson) sagte:
"It's a fact that people are taking charge of football clubs now with no previous history or affiliation to that club.
"At Aston Villa, for example, Doug Ellis had been there 'forever', as had the Mooresfamily at Liverpool.
"There was a sense that the owners were fans first, that they understood the English game. Now we have people in charge of English clubs and it's their first attempt.
"My worry, and obviously there is a similar situation at West Ham, is that the people who are in charge haven't got that history and that can be a difficult situation. They might react to criticism, they might react to results while perhaps a seasoned campaigner would take things in their stride.
"This year, the expectation levels for a lot of clubs have become unrealistic. Short-termism seems to be to the fore. The pressure's on everyone and it's all about now."
