City of London police obtained a search warrant and raided Birmingham City Football Club early today. Birmingham City have recently been in the news for their objection to a FIFA enquiry into the atrocious tackle on Arsenal’s Eduardo which not only threatened his career but could have left him requiring amputation.
FIFA have said they want an enquiry to investigate the tackle, but Birmingham have reacted against this and have been aided by the FA who have also opposed any enquiry Quite shamefully the player involved has been allowed to play again.
The raid is believed to relate to the Lord Stevens enquiry into illicit payments to players and their agents and football corruption. No one at the club has been arrested and there is no suggestion that the police believe that anyone at Birmingham City has done anything wrong.
