Jordan: If I bought Charlton I'd close them down
12 Oct 2010 - 11:24:49
Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan has says he would welcome the chance to work with any football club in the future, apart from Charlton Athletic.
Jordan left Selhurst Park in January when the club plunged into financial meltdown and eventually administration and he now estimates that he lost £50million during his time with the Eagles.
However, he retains a strong hatred of Charlton, saying: "I remember seeing (Charlton chief) Richard Murray in court when I took Iain Dowie to court. The next time I talk to Richard Murray will be through a medium.
"The last club that I would buy or be involved with would be Charlton. The only reason I'd buy it is so I could close it down.
"I don't like the way their board operates. I don't like the way Richard Murray conducts himself, I don't like the way their fans conduct themselves in games and I don't like the way I was physically attacked when I went to Charlton and had to get a police escort.
"So it's not my favourite place and they are not my favourite fans or favourite club. They should be extremely grateful Palace gave them a ground to play at 15 years ago."
