Birmingham owner Yeung reveals Carling Cup dream



Bimingham Citys millionaire owner Carson Yeung has spoken about how Birmingham reaching the cup final is a dream, and his Premier League ambitions.

Yeung is rarely interviewed but spoke to Sky Sports News from Hong Kong to reveal his dream.

He told the news channel, “I’m sure we can stay in the Premier League.”

“We’re still looking for good players to join our team. (David) Bentley and (Obafemi) Martins are good players. They have had some good performances. Maybe they can do even better after a few more games.”

Yeung, who is extremely wealthy was also asked if he would ever spend £50million on a player, after Russian Roman Abrimovich splashed that amount on Fernando Torres this January.

Yeung replied: “It’s step by step for us and we cannot rush.”

Yeung will be at Wembley for Birminghams first Wembley appearance in over 50 years and is looking forward to the game.

He added: “It’s just not Birmingham fans who are excited. This is my dream too. It’s exciting and amazing. My dream has almost come true.”

Birmingham had their annual shareholder convention in Hong Kong, and revealed new plans to expand and develop their exisiting stadium, but Birmingham’s chairman stressed Premier League survival was the current target.

“Premier League retention is our aim.” said Peter Pannu.

“I’m sure the Carling Cup Final will give the boys some confidence and a jab up their arm and take us further.”
