David Haigh believes he could be the victim of "forgeries" and "underhand" tactics after being accused of serious financial mismanagement by Leeds United's previous majority owners, Gulf Finance House Capital. The club's former managing director has been held in a Dubai police station cell since mid-May and could remain in jail until 23 June after his period of detention was extended by 15 days yesterday by a judge. The 36-year-old, has not been charged with a criminal offence and denies all the allegations against him, saying he may have been lured to Dubai through "subterfuge". James Riach
