It is not the first time Cook’s words have got him in trouble, and he is a laughing stock in the football world for his silly comments during Manchester City’s time as a wealthy club.
Dr Onuoha said: “When Cook replied to me, he said that he was confused, that he’d been away on holiday in South Africa and that somebody had hacked into his email account and whoever sent the email to Brian Marwood meant it as a practical joke. It was all very stressful at the time, in fact it still is.
“The illness I have is very stressful, I’m having chemotherapy and radiotherapy, including having radiotherapy on my brain and this year has been traumatic. I didn’t want anybody adding to my stress but that is what they’ve done
