Former Manchester City chief executive Garry Cook has admitted he regrets the errors he made during his time at the club, including inducting former City striker Uwe Rosler into the Manchester United hall of fame and accusing Italian side Milan of lacking the courage to sell Kaka, the BBC
Cook stepped down from his role at City in September 2011 after it was alleged he sent an email to then-City defender Nedum Onouha in which he mocked the player’s mother’s cancer. Cook denied sending the missive, claiming his email account had been hacked, but resigned following an internal investigation.
The former Nike employee was however instrumental in bringing the Abu Dhabi money of Sheikh Mansour to the blue half of Manchester, transforming the club in the blink of an eye. Yet Cook revealed he regretted mixing up the name of the club with their local rivals at a supporters’ club ceremony to honour Rosler, and that he should not have accused Milan of “bottling” out of a deal to sell Kaka, along with a handful of other incidents. Cook however defended his mistakes by saying: “I deeply regret making a mistake. But I’m also a great believer that if you’re not making mistakes, you’re not trying hard enough.”
