Yellow Card of the Week: Hull City Owner Assem Allam

Will TideySenior Manager, GlobalDecember 4, 2013

Hull City owner Assem Allam wants the team to change its name. He's pushing for Hull Tigers, and there are a lot of City fans who don't like it.

Some of them put together a group called "City till I die" in protest, and Allam didn't like what they were saying. The Egyptian businessman fired back with a line that will be with him forever.

He's my yellow card of the week.
