Kuala Lumpur: Malaysian entrepreneur Tony Fernandes hit back furiously on Friday after English football club West Ham dismissed his offer for a controlling stake as "two bob" and "bizarre."
Fernandes, who owns budget airline AirAsia and Formula One's Team Lotus, said his bid - announced on Twitter - was not a joke or a publicity stunt but would have boosted the team after their relegation from the Premier League.
"Make up your mind Sullivan and Gold. One minute you say no offer then you say it's a joke offer. It was a good offer with good money and brought in good people," Fernandes tweeted, referring to co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold.
