Former Derby County player Lee Hendrie has admitted that he wouldn’t want to see Erik Alonso anywhere near the club, during an exclusive interview with Football League World.
The Spanish businessman is still waiting for his deal to go through to buy the Rams after an agreement was originally struck back in April with Mel Morris.
This has led many to question what the Spaniard’s motives are, with further controversy being added into the mix over the last few days after Alonso mysteriously deleted his Twitter account.
It comes as the latest strange event to happen in what has been a whirlwind week for the Rams as they are still waiting to find out what sanctions they will receive from the Football League after the governing body won it’s appeal against the club over charges relating to financial misconduct.
The events off the field have arguably taken people’s attention away from the Alonso saga, yet his actions on social media have now put the microscope firmly back in his direction this week.
Now, Hendrie has provided his thoughts on the prospective Derby owner, with the ex-midfielder stating the following to FLW:
“Do you want to be floundering and messing around with people who are messing with you football club? I certainly wouldn’t, I’d want some stability, I’d want some answers, I’d want the finances put in place.
“And that seems to be the current situation at Derby County at the moment, they’ve got possible new owners, who are saying that they are going to inject money into the football club and he’s gone missing, you know, staying up by the skin of their teeth, possible points deduction, it just seems a bit of a mess at the moment.
“It needs to be resolved quite quickly because they have to have a structure in place ready for next season, whether that’s in the Championship or League One, they have to compete.”
