Sam Hammam looked certain to become the first football owner to be charged by the FA with bringing the game into disrepute with his “writing on the wall incident” after Wimbledon’s 2-0 victory at West Ham.
The Wimbledon chief was unrepentant after the match accusing West Ham manager Billy Bonds of invading his dressing room “sanctuary” and deliberately seeking confrontation. The row erupted less than two hours before kick-off when Bonds and his assistant Harry Redknapp arrived unexpectedly in the Upton Park’s visitors’ dressing room to discover Hammam reading the match programme and offensive graffiti on the wall. But the Lebanese owner was in no mood to apologise.
Sam Hammam said “I feel hard done by. I am the victim in this incident but I have broad shoulders and a big heart. If I want to write that Vinnie Jones is this and John Fashanu is that, its my business, no one else’s. The ink in the pen was erasable, I took it from a West Ham official after checking it. I intended the dressing room to be left as I found it.”
