Owner's wife lets rip at Bournemouth team in half-time clash

The Russian wife of League One Bournemouth’s part-owner Maxim Demin stormed into the dressing room at half time to deliver a pep talk on Saturday.

Already losing 1-0, Bournemouth players sat shocked as Irena Demin demanding a second-half improvement. They went on to lose to MK Dons by the same score but Demin’s coowner, chairman and property developer Eddie Mitchell, defended her.

He said: ‘She, her husband and I have put a lot of energy and money into the club and she was entitled in my view to express an opinion.

‘People who are responsible for the money are entitled to voice an opinion. She felt frustrated, we all felt frustrated, but she felt her opinions and that frustration should filter down to the players.

'Manager Lee Bradbury has our support 120 per cent — he will probably not pick me for the bench next week after this — but it was fun.’
