Eight days after the news emerged that Nick Barmby had been suspended by City, it’s now being widely reported that he’s been sacked by the Tigers. Official confirmation (and hopefully a very good explanation) is expected from the club later.
Adam Pearson has already offered a terse disapproval of the whole shambles; whether Nick Barmby is likely to speak publicly about his dismissal from his home-town club is probably dependent upon the legal situation surrounding his departure.
What a desperately unhappy way for one Hull’s greatest sporting sons to leave the club he’s supported all his life. Answers please, City.
1555 UPDATE: The club’s official statement is now online, confirming that Barmby was sacked for “certain comments made by Nick in recent interviews”.
