Oldham 0 Pompey 2: they said what?

Have your say

PORTPIN has called on The Football League to clarify its stance on bids for Portsmouth Football Club.

As previously reported in The News, the league originally claimed they would not consider any offers other than the one put on the table from the Pompey Supporters’ Trust.

But Portpin, which is owned by former Pompey owner Balram Chainrai, wants league chairman Greg Clarke to give reasons why offers approved by the administrator PKF and the club’s creditors are not in the running.

A spokesman for Portpin said: ‘We have made clear that we are agnostic as to the source of the solution for Portsmouth Football Club and welcome whichever bid offers both the best deal for the creditors of the club and provides the highest degree of certainty for the supporters in bringing Portsmouth out of administration.

‘There are now at least two offers for the club, one from the Supporters Trust and one from a consortium which includes Keith Harris, and legally they must both be considered on their merit.

‘After more than a year of uncertainty, this process must be brought to a close.’
