    Date published: Monday 22nd June 2020 4:03

    Hull City have taken the unusual step of publishing an email sent to them by a journalist they have accused of trying to paint them “in as poor a light as possible”.

    The struggling Championship club published an article on their website in response to a communication from Adam Crafton from The Athletic.

    Crafton had suggested that Eric Lichaj, Stephen Kingsley, Jackson Irvine and Marcus Maddison had reported for training only to be told they by Tigers boss Grant McCann that they would not be part of the first-team squad.

    The Tigers’ statement read: “It is a shame that, whilst all in the football world should be pulling together to ensure the ongoing viability of football clubs and the game in general, this journalist appears to seek scandal where none exists.

    “He will no doubt publish this story, which is nothing more than a trouble-making cheap shot. Accordingly, in the interest of transparency, we publish both his email to the club and the club’s reply below.

    “We have redacted certain names and financial information in his email in the interest of preserving the confidentiality of the parties involved.”

    The Athletic also invited Hull to comment on the club’s ownership after the outlet claimed to have held talks with persons who have attempted to buy the club in recent years.



    The club, who have banned the local paper the Hull Daily Mail for “negative coverage” have taken the unusual steps of publishing the journalist’s email and a response from them.

    The response says that players’ contracts and dealings with their staff will remain “confidential” and so will any discussions regarding the sale of shares in the club.
