Pierre van Hooijdonk conned out of €2.5m

Tuesday 20 May 2008

Former Dutch football player Pierre van Hooijdonk admits to the AD on Tuesday that he was conned out of €2.5m.

He invested the money in a Chinese textile company on the advice of his former accountant, but the company does not exist.

Van Hooijdonk is trying to get his money back, along with others conned in the wide-ranging fraud. 'But I don't expect to succeed,' he tells the paper.

What about the 30,000 Nottingham Forest Season Ticket holders Mr Van Hooijdonk conned out of their money when he went on strike. Although nobody likes the thought of someone being robbed like this... It smacks of karma to me!!

Oh grow up Belshaw, he had a right to change jobs - that doesn't make him deserve to be done out of 2.5m euros. Given the depths to which Forest have sunk since, his decision was clearly the right one!

I wonder if Pierre still thinks £7000 per week is only enough for the homeless to live on?

You could have been a legend big man!
