    I think it would be a decent bet that Cortese had to resign....becauase he is involved in some way with a proposed purchase of the club.

    Obvviously if this was the case, he would have aconflict of interest had he stayed in his role.
    I'd say it's more because the owners of the football club were fed up of being dictated to by their employee to be honest.

    I think they were remarkably patient with him demanding full control of their property, but mainly because they rightly realised that he was doing a brilliant job and increasing it's value, plus they were reluctant to do anything Markus wouldn't have wanted.

    If Nicola had plans to buy the club I would have thought he'd have done it when the price was lower - driving up the price so you can buy it doesn't make brilliant business sense, although if he really sees us as a Champions League club who knows..
    Perhaps N.C. couldn't pass the fit and proper person test. Who knows."
