The Independent report that, Kline claimed that Khan's intention to purchase Wembley in a £600m takeover involves plans to move his team away from Craven Cottage: a stadium which has stood for 122 years.
Pakistani-American billionaire Khan purchased Fulham F.C. back in July 2013 for an estimated £150-200m.
Refuting this, Kline has claimed that Khan’s purchase of Fulham was largely motivated by long-term intentions to move his NFL franchise, the Jacksonville Jaguars, to London.
Speaking to the Independent, and contradicting Khan's earlier statements, Kline said:
Dear FA Council (+relevant police, MPs, regulators, press etc). I have key evidence of systemic corruption relevant to the Wembley vote which I'd like to submit. Please request this info from me.#fraud #wembley #MrPringle #teflon #racism #kickbacks #CC #JtL #threats #minors— Craig Kline (@CRK1006) 8 October 2018
Fulham and Khan have since offered a statement, saying: “This is nothing more than the same ongoing nonsense and bogus claims made by a former employee who left the club in 2017. Nothing here merits a further response.”
Kline's accusations and claims are all of a serious nature. However, Fulham seem to be adamant that they are all untrue.
Khan’s proposed Wembley purchase moved a step closer last month after it was approved by the FA board.
