Following on from Steve Parish’s extensive interview with Sky Sports News last week, he has now spoken at length to BBC Sport about the US billionaires who are set to buy a stake in the club.
Steve Parish’s full interview with BBC Sport can be seen here; covering the plans for Selhurst Park, the change in ownership structure and the club’s future direction. It certainly makes for an exciting read.
Having flown over to New York to be a part of NBC’s Blazercon event, where numerous movers and shakers from the world of football spoke to supporters about the specific roles they occupy within their organisation, Parish was on hand to shed further light on the deal which will see the ownership structure change dramatically at Selhurst Park.
As you would expect, Steve’s comments do their best to accentuate every positive associated with the influx of further funding, playing down any fears over the club’s future under American rule by highlighting the huge improvements he and his fellow directors will now be able to make behind the scenes.
We should not forget that Parish and the rest of CPFC2010 have had their fair share of potential investors casting a glance in their direction before, only to turn them away after doing some further digging into their motives. Given the length of time both Harris and Blitzer appear to have spent with our board, you would assume that their interest in helping us is concrete, with Parish himself seemingly convinced of their dedication to the cause.
Touching on the plans for the renovation of Selhurst Park as well as the changes that the deal will bring about behind the scenes, the interview with Steve is, as ever, well worth a few minutes of your time.
After months of posturing, it seems as if the deal involving Harris and Blitzer may now be just around the corner. I think we’re all allowed to get a little excited, surely?
