Finance expert: Fears over seizure of Yeung's stake in Birmingham City

A football finance expert has said life could be difficult for Birmingham City following Carson Yeung's sentencing, because there are fears that his stake in the club may be seized by the Hong Kong state.

Yeung, who resigned as Chairman of the club last month, laundered more than £55 million through his bank accounts over six years, and has been jailed for six years.

Robert Matusiewicz says the shares once held by Carson Yeung could be bought by an individual with no affinity to Birmingham City, and view it simply as an investment.
