Peter Knatchbull-Huggeson has slammed those running Coventry City Football Club.
Speaking to BBC Coventry & Warwickshire, the Higgs Charity Representative said: "How could I describe the management of the football club? I think best not to because of the laws of libel and so on. And anyway I expect I'd get edited out or bleeped.
"But I think that says enough about the management of the football club that now is the best time that something could happen.
"I think it's clear that they have acknowledged that they have failed over the first few years of their ownership.
"I think they've had a very cold shower and begun to understand that they need to run it more sensibly.
"And I think the people they have got now are the most sensible people I've seen at the football club in the last 20 years."
