VIDEO: Bizarre transfer video sees Mansfield’s ‘glamorous’ club chief pick up new signing from airport

Football fans were left cringing this morning after Mansfield Town posted a video of them revealing the transfer of Nicky Maynard.

To the tune of Glamorous by Fergie, club chief Carolyn Radford is seen leaving where she is staying in Portugal, to meet up with Maynard at the airport.

She gets in the expensive and shiny looking Rolls Royce with the roof down and the camera pointing at the customised number plate.

They film her journey through one of the locations they pass through, before she then arrives at Faro airport, she gets out and like a model walks her way through the entrance.

She holds up what we’re assuming is an iPad with his name and background in Mansfield colours and it’s fair to say Nicky’s face said what he made of the situation.

He got in her car, they made way back to where she was staying, then was greeted by owner John Radford and some kids.

Watch the bizarre one minute video for yourself below…

Stags’ manager John Dempster said: “We are delighted to welcome Nicky to the football club. He comes with great experience and is of a real pedigree.

“Once the CEO [Carolyn Radford] finalised this deal with his representatives, I was impressed with the football questions Nicky asked about our new campaign.

“He is a goalscorer, team player and someone who our young attacking players will be able to learn from by watching and communicating with him.

“I would like to say thank you to our owners, who have yet again come up trumps with their support of me.”

 

After watching the viral clip, fans did what they do best and mock it, of course majority of it was targeted at Carolyn Radford – check out the amusing reaction on the next page.
