Jewell: Bung inquiry is like being questioned by KGB

Paul Jewell has compared his interview by the Quest team investigating alleged corruption in football to a KGB interrogation.

Every Premiership manager and chief executive has been questioned as part of Lord Stevens' inquiry and Wigan boss Jewell admitted being intimidated by his experience.

'I was interviewed last season and it was like something out of the 1920s,' Jewell said in The Sun.

'There were these guys using old-fashioned tape recorders and breaking the seals on the tapes in front of you to show they couldn't have been tampered with.

'I hadn't seen anything like it before. It was ridiculous but can be pretty intimidating.

'When they ask you questions like `Have you ever been offered money as part of a transfer deal?', even when you know the answer is no, you still find yourself thinking: `Crickey, was I or not?'

'They look at the transfer records and choose one or two to question you on. Apparently, it's two ex-police officers who do the questioning and you sit there wondering what you've done to upset the KGB.

'They interviewed me and Brenda Spencer, our chief executive. It lasted about 10 to 15 minutes. From what I hear, ours were some of the shortest interviews they did.'

Jewell feels the whole process was flawed, adding: 'They asked me if I'd ever been offered money and I said no. I've nothing to hide and I was happy to co-operate.

'But I thought: `Well. I'm hardly likely to say, am I, even if I had been.'
