Simon Corney has reached the point where he is ready to sell the Latics. The news comes after all the controversy which surrounded the Ched Evans debacle. He has always recently said that the club is up for sale if the right person comes along buy now he admits that he has had enough and would like to clinch a deal over the club as soon as possible.
Corney said, “I’ve had enough and it’s no secret. Where does it all end, in 15 or 20 years’ time? I’ve been here for 12 years and I just don’t have the same interest any more. I love the club and love the game but enough is enough. I would like to find a buyer. Hopefully it will be a lot more sellable with a new stand there. And I would want it to go to the right person. I’m completely over it (Evans). It came and it went, that was it. I was over here when it was all going on and it grew to be a lot bigger than I thought. But once the answer became a no, that was that. I still think the right thing would have been to take him, I really do. But in the end it wasn’t to be. We underestimated the attention and fury.”
Director Richard Taylor has also resigned as he was opposed the deal.
