THE chairman is to cede control of an auction in the world’s leading London pub-based fantasy football league for the first time in history, according to sources at Kenna HQ.
It’s believed the 2018 Dimitri Kharine World Cup auction next June will be coordinated and run by another member of the league.
In the 12 years since the Kenna League founded, the chairman has been responsible for running 13 domestic and six international tournament auctions.
The news prompted jubilant scenes at the Young Boys of Vauxhall training facility Fiddler’s Harris (pictured).
The Young Boys manager, who is also vice chairman of the Kenna League, is a long-time critic of the Kenna leadership, fomenting unrest at every opportunity.
The Welsh-Belgian has claimed he would have been chairman were it not for inherent racism against the people of Wales at Kenna HQ.
Last November, he used the #NotMyChairman protests among Kenna managers to further his own case for taking over the league.
Should the vice chairman assume control of the World Cup auction it’s thought he will make root-and-branch changes to the event.
What’s become the traditional venue of the auction, the Hoop and Grapes on Farringdon Road, could also be under threat.
It’s feared the auction could move from a convenient central London location to the Young Boys’ Yewtree Lane home ground in the transport blackhole of Battersea.
‘The chairman’s been running these auctions well for years, but he feels now could be time to let someone else have a go,’ said the source at Kenna HQ.
‘Should he pass control of the auction to the vice chairman, I’m sure it’ll never come to be likened to Donald Trump giving Kim Jong un the keys to the White House.’
