Well, they (Sportsdirect) are only interested in making money. They dont care about the brand Donnay and its history.
A couple of years ago i talked to Stephen Nardelli who was in charge when they made the deal back in 1996, i was very surprised how little or nothing he knew about Donnay rackets in general.
Nice guy nevertheless...
Sports do not build character. They reveal it.
