Carson Yeung may be the key contributor to Birmingham City's perilous financial state but at least the business tycoon's trial for money laundering in Hong Kong will at least provide Blues fans with some ridiculous humour.
One of his closest friends, Joseph Ng Loi-Ping told the court that former luxury casino owner used to cut Jackie Chan’s hair in the 1980s.
Loi-ping said the former Rush Hour star was a client at Yeung’s salon Vole, located in Hong Kong’s plush Peninsula Hotel. A haircut in Vole at the time would usually set you back around HK$500 (€50 Euro) which sounds reasonable given how relatively still Chan's hair stayed during his many action scenes.
Yeung, who still owns Birmingham City, is accused of laundering HK$721 million through the five accounts with Wing Lung Bank and HSBC between January 2001 to December 2007.
