Don’t appreciate being called a liar
An uncomfortable night at The Valley Tuesday for Katrien Meire, but probably more so for Johnnie Jackson, Steve Avory and Tony Watt, who must have wondered why an earth he got a last minute invite to a heated VIP Q&A and was asked a question about Scottish sexual monsters!
With Guy Luzon
bailing deciding to watch Wigan play Reading last minute instead, it seems Katrien pulled rank on a mixture of football staff to take a large part of the heat away from her. It may have worked, it may not have done, it just comes across as another PR gaff.
Richard Murray conveniently was stuck in traffic and missed the first half hour when Katrien was the focus of all the questions, particularly about Guy Luzon’s appointment and Roland Duchatelet’s ambitions for the club.
Katrien doesn’t appreciate being a liar. I don’t appreciate that she even put herself in a situation that she has had to deny lying. How possibly the club received 20 applicants and interviewed thoroughly two managers face to face in a single day just hours after the position came up calls for scrutiny and I think she is forgetting that the Sky cameras were outside the ground for most of it, capturing Luzon’s arrival with his suitcase and then reappearing 20 minutes later.
Remember at the time Meire said that “by late Sunday evening it became clear that Guy was the favourite.” Some exhaustive interview search that was.
If Roland Duchatelet’s confident Dudu Dahan hadn’t blabbed it or Mrs Luzon given the game away, then I may have more confidence in Ms Meire.
Anyway you can decide for yourself as the video of the event is up on the Official You Tube site.
