Michael Eisner, the owner of Portsmouth FC, has mocked Sunderland fans for how they sounded during the two side’s last meeting.
Disney’s former chief executive recently flew over from the US to watch some of Pompey’s opening league matches and sat down to discuss about a variation of topics.
Some of that included ‘aspirations of becoming a global brand’, ‘the future of Fratton Park’, ‘last season’s Checkatrade Trophy win’ and ‘Pompey’s Premier League potential’.
Though during one part of his look back on last season, he spoke of the Wembley final and then mocked the Black Cats supporters.
When asked what was going through his mind when the EFL Trophy cup was lifted, he replied: “Well that time, I had been coming out of the stunned state that I was in, and I saw 85,000 fans in the stadium and what impressed me was our fans took up half the stadium, from midfield all the way round to midfield. And that half of the stadium was on fire.
“We were waving flags, we the fans were screaming and yelling and just into it.
“The other half of the stadium was like they were a church.
“So it was nice definition of me as wow, Pompey fans are unique.So that was the first impression.
“Er, then of course beating Sunderland, was a nice thing to happen.”
Watch the moment he said it in the video below…
