Cardiff face winding up order over unpaid transfer fee worth four weeks of Craig Bellamy’s wages
Cardiff City have been threatened with court action and a possible winding-up order by Scottish side Motherwell over an unpaid transfer fee.
Well claim the Bluebirds owe £175,000 from Paul Quinn’s move south last year. So they were understandably disgruntled when they found out the Welsh club had agreed a loan deal for Craig Bellamy which will see them pay half of his £90,000 a week wages.
Chairman John Boyle said: “We’ve had no alternative but to take legal action. We’ll consider a winding-up order or simply send bailiffs to their ground on a home match and collect our cash.
“It is absolutely ridiculous that they’re splashing money all round the place and can’t even pay last year’s debts.”
Financial mismanagement? At Cardiff? Their fans will be absolutely flabbergasted.
