OLDHAM Athletic owner Abdallah Lemsagam and his brother Mo were sent letters with bullets today, it has been reported.

Two brown envelopes, one addressed to Mr Lemsagam and the other to his brother Mo, were opened at Latics' stadium Boundary Park this morning.

The terrifying discoveries of a bullet in each envelope were then made along with threatening letters, which Sky Sports has released a picture of.

The screenshot shown by the broadcaster warns the owner to sell the club or his family will "need to watch" their backs.

The shocking incident comes after the announcement today that Mr Lemsagam is in talks to sell the club following a backlash against the way he has run it.

Fans group Push The Boundary (PTB) has condemned the reported letters.

A spokesman said: "PTB would like to place on record our disgust at the reports this afternoon that the owners have both received death threats.

"PTB resolutely condemn any kind of threat or abuse.

"This type of behaviour has no place in our society.

"All this type of behaviour does is derail the hard work done by honest law-abiding supporters.

"The club had already admitted in their statement that talks were ongoing with credible people.

"As we stated numerous times previously, we urge supporters to be respectful at all times.

"Emotions may run high but making any form of threat and abuse should never be tolerated.

"PTB will work with the club, if required, to assist in identifying the person(s) involved."

Greater Manchester Police has been contacted about the incident.
