Blackpool Chairman reveals multiple bung offers

The chairman of a Football League club has revealed that he and his managers have been offered bribes by agents on a number of occasions.

Karl Oyston has been chairman of Blackpool, currently in League One, since 1999 and he believes the issue of bungs is still a major problem in football, including the Premiership.

Since BBC Panorama aired their claims about illegal payments in football on Tuesday night, most figures in the game have lined up to insist they have never been offered or taken bungs.

But Oyston has blown the whistle by insisting his unwillingness to take bribes has cost Blackpool several players.

Oyston told the Blackpool Gazette: 'I have been offered cash as a bribe to bring a player to the club and it's happened more than once.

'In one instance, someone wanted me to take a player on a higher salary than we would normally pay, so he offered me a certain amount of cash as a gift to get me to do it.

'I said no and it didn't take any time whatsoever to reach that decision.

'To be honest, I was amazed they tried it with me because they obviously hadn't done their research otherwise they would have realised that I'm related to the majority shareholder, or maybe they just think everybody is as twisted as they are.

'Since 1999 when I became chairman here, my managers have been offered bungs.

'We've missed out on a lot of footballers because of it and that is one of my biggest concerns.

'It is very disturbing and in the Premiership where there are huge, huge deals taking place, it is a major problem.'
