The Intention Was To Always Go Public - Hoffman

Gary Hoffman gives his thoughts. Gary Hoffman has said that it is was always the intention of the investors to reveal themselves when a deal had been concluded with Coventry City's owners. Speaking to the CT before joining the City support in the away end, where he was cheered by the vast majority of those present at the Riverside Stadium to see the Sky Blues draw 1-1 at Middlesbrough, Mr Hoffman said:“The response to the formal offer was, from their perspective, an inappropriate communication through a lawyer rather than saying, let’s just sit round the table and try to get something done. “They are not faceless investors and would have been very happy, once we had got a deal, to be fully public. "It is not like Sisu who are faceless people who hide behind the scenes. “It was always the intention, at the appropriate point, to go public but while negotiations are going on that is not appropriate. It is not the way to do a deal. “The bottom line is that despite lots of efforts, every message they send, really, is that they don’t want to do a deal. "Let’s just hope they don’t live to regret the fact that they don’t want to do a deal. “This has taken a lot of my time, although that’s not important because I would do anything for the club and now I am going back to being a fan, starting at Middlesbrough today.”
