Hull City owner Assem Allam threatens to quit club over name-change dispute

Hull City owner Assem Allam claims that he will walk out on the club if his proposed name change is not approved by the FA.

Hull City owner Assem Allam has threatened to quit the club if his proposed name change is not approved by the Football Association.

The Egypt-born businessman hopes to re-brand the team as the Hull Tigers, although the FA has promised to consult disgruntled fans before anything is finalised.

However, Allam has claimed that he will walk away from the KC Stadium if his plan is rejected.

"No-one on earth is allowed to question my business decisions. I won't allow it," he told Sky Sports News.

"I am here to save the club and manage the club for the benefit of the community. It will never, never be the other way round - that the community manage it for me.

"But if the community say go away, I promise to go away within 24 hours. It's a free country. No two ways about it. Have I ever said something and went back on it? No."

Allam took over Hull back in 2010.
