 BERNSTEIN AND KING LEFT ASTON VILLA AFTER RANDY LERNER COMMOTION

David Bernstein and Lord King have both part ways with the Aston Villa crew.

Their departure from the Aston Villa board was triggered by a bitter fall-out with the club’s owner Randy Lerner. Bernstein and King had written to Villa chairman Steve Hollis on Monday, tendering their resignations with immediate effect.

It can now be revealed that their decisions were the result of a highly unfriendly exchange with Lerner. After joining Villa in March and February respectively, Bernstein and King grew increasingly frustrated at the lack of headway they were able to make.

This came to a head when email communication between the pair, which included criticism of Lerner, was leaked to the US businessman. Lerner replied with an email of his own that featured a hurtful reproach to Bernstein and King, which they felt left their positions untenable.

The incident was hinted at in King’s resignation letter, which he started by telling Hollis: “You will be aware of recent communications between the owner of Aston Villa and members of the Football Board.

“Following these, I am sure you will understand that it is with real sorrow that I am writing to tender my resignation as a director of Aston Villa Football Club Ltd with immediate effect.

“I do not take this course of action lightly. As a supporter for over 55 years, how could I?”

Bernstein and King were shocked by the content and manner of Lerner’s email – especially lifelong Villa fan King, given he has known the American since his takeover in 2006.

As at filling in this report, Naijapr is not certain about where they would be, but it is certain that they would find their footings in football yet again in another club of their choice.
