Bury Owner Steve Dale Labelled "A Disgrace" After Shocking BBC Radio 5 Live Interview

Bury Owner Steve Dale Labelled "A Disgrace" After Shocking BBC Radio 5 Live Interview

It was announced on Tuesday night that League One side Bury have been expelled from the Football League after a takeover bid collapsed.

The club's EFL membership was officially withdrawn after owner Steve Dale failed to find a buyer for the club ahead of the 5pm deadline.

Dale, who reportedly took control of the club without full approval from the English Football League, has been slated on a number of occasions for the way he has dealt with the unfortunate situation.

He was involved in a heated radio discussion with Bury midfielder Steven Dawson on talkSPORT and even issued a plea to fans and local businesses to pledge money to help save the club.

But one particular interview with BBC Radio 5 Live last week has once again gone viral for all the wrong reasons.

In a sensational outburst, Dale claims that he "never went to Bury" so to walk away and never go back is "a very easy thing to do."

He also claimed he "didn't even know there was a football team called Bury" as well as declaring that he isn't even a football fan.

Dale also gives advice to Bury fans saying they need to "not show themselves up by disgraceful behaviour when they're full of beer."

Following the devastating news surrounding the future of Bury, club captain Neil Danns sent a damning message to their owner on talkSPORT.

"This should never have happened." he said. "If you thought you could not move this club forward in a positive way you should never have taken over because you've literally destroyed lives, because that's what this football club meant to so many fans.

"When you see the devastation of the fans I just think I have to say something,

"It's unbelievable. I still can't believe it."

Thoughts on the Bury situation?
