It’s worth pointing out up top that he’s already denied it, but the Sun are claiming this morning that Man City chief exec Garry Cook has been reported to the FA after being accused of inadvertently sending a frankly appalling email to Nedum Onouha’s cancer-suffering mother.
According to the paper, the email was addressed to ‘Brian’ (presumably Marwood) and read: “Ravaged with it!!……..I don’t know how you sleep at night. You used to be such a nice man when I worked with you at Nike. G”.
Dr Anthonia Onuoha, who acts as her son’s agent, told the Sun:
“When I opened up my emails and saw the message, it was the worst day of my life. Even worse than being diagnosed with cancer. I don’t understand how anyone could behave like that. I am critically ill.”
Dr Onuoha also states that Cook has since been in touch, apologising for the email and deploying the old ‘my account was hacked’ excuse:
“When Cook replied to me, he said that he was confused, that he’d been away on holiday in South Africa and that somebody had hacked into his email account and whoever sent the email to Brian Marwood meant it as a practical joke. It was all very stressful at the time, in fact it still is.
“The feeling of humiliation still persists. Now I just want the FA and the Premier League to see what’s happened and to take the appropriate action. Treating people like this is completely abominable.”
Sigh, it galls me that I’ve even had to sit here and type this up. I, personally, don’t believe for one minute that the email was hacked – if it were then surely the ‘joke’ would be more direct and offensive, rather than just a flippant, obnoxious remark?
And before any of the gormless United meatheads come wading in on your well-worn ‘typical City, no class’ tangent, this has nothing to do with the club – this is simply nothing more than Garry Cook, a man with apparently zippo in the ‘moral fibre and decorum’ department, acting like the complete c*nt he routinely shows himself up to be.
